ABC Audio Ups Derricke Dennis to Staff Correspondent

ABC Audio has promoted Derricke Dennis to staff correspondent. Dennis first joined the ABC newsroom in the fall of 2019 working overnight shifts. It didn't take long until he become a fixture on ABC News Radio, working a full schedule for the last two years as a freelancer, and anchoring our flagship I-NET newscast with a distinctive style - simultaneously deep but laid-back, thorough yet conversational.

Dennis brings a wealth of journalism experience to his new role. Prior to ABC, he anchored a weeknight global newscast on I-24 News. He also has been a host on the Law & Crime network, and before that he worked as a reporter and anchor at WCBS-TV, News 12 New Jersey, and WDIV-TV in Detroit. He's a skilled storyteller who's been instrumental in our coverage of the pandemic, delivering many breaking headlines and - just as deftly - documenting in a long-form piece how weird it was to return to a New Jersey gym for the first time post-lockdown.

A New Jersey native, Derricke grew up in Atlantic City and graduated from Howard University's John H. Johnson School of Communications in Washington, DC.

In this new role, Derricke will report for all ABC Audio platforms, he'll continue to anchor newscasts - as well as coverage of breaking news and special events - and he'll be instrumental in our efforts to build new products and reach new audiences.
