Kentucky Dad Podcast with WLKY’s Stephon Dingle

A familiar face around the Commonwealth joins the show


The Kentucky Dad Podcast took a little break during basketball season, but we’re ready to get back on track now that the pain and misery of a 9-16 season is finally in the rearview.

To kick things off, I had the pleasure of chatting with Stephon Dingle. Currently, Stephon operates as WLKY’s the 5 PM anchor and is a well-known face around the Louisville viewing area.

Originally from Baltimore, he’s had the opportunity to cover some incredibly powerful stories across various cities in the south.

From the Breonna Taylor protests here in Louisville to a Christmas Day tornado in Birmingham, Alabama — Stephon has a passion for telling genuine stories about the community he serves.

When he’s not working the anchor desk he’ll now have his hands full with a beautiful new baby girl that just arrived one month ago.

It’s always entertaining getting the perspective of a brand-new dad. They are so wise and so naive all at the same time!

But if you decide to check out this episode I think you’ll agree that Stephon is a special person who isn’t afraid to let self-reflection and accountability mold him into the dad that he’s striving to be.

I know our conversation left me inspired not only as a parent but also as a citizen who wants my community to be the best it can be.

Stephon brought the heat with his dad joke and provided tons of comedy along the way.

Take a few minutes and listen to the podcast if you’d like. Please follow us @KentuckyDadPod on Twitter.
