Blake joined Eyewitness News in August, 2020 as a weekend sports anchor/reporter. Born and raised in Kentucky, he comes to the station with a plethora of experience as a sports reporter in the Bluegrass state.
As a graduate of Murray State University, Blake had the opportunity to provide award-winning sports coverage as editor of the university publication, The Murray State News. He also has deep ties to print journalism, having worked internships at The Crittenden Press and the Murray Ledger & Times.
Blake’s journey into broadcast journalism began in 2019 when he accepted an internship with WPSD-TV in Paducah, Kentucky. That internship opened his eyes to the unique and unparalleled possibilities that visual storytelling has to offer, and he hasn’t looked back since. After the internship, Blake spent the next year working at WPSD as a sports reporter before joining the team at Eyewitness News. Blake says he has been amazed by the doors his passion for sports has opened and he is thrilled to bring that same passion to work everyday reporting across the Tri-State.
