Dominoe Ibarra joined KION News Channel 5/46 as the evening producer in October 2019. She grew up in Lodi, California and is happy to be working on the Central Coast, close to her hometown.
Prior to joining KION, she graduated cum laude from San Jose State University back in May 2019 with a Bachelor of Science in journalism and an emphasis in radio, television and film. While at SJSU, she was a staff writer and copy editor for the Spartan Daily newspaper. She also joined SJSU’s broadcast station, Update News, as a multimedia journalist and part-time anchor.
Dominoe has been abroad to Greece and Italy on a faculty-led program to report on the refugee crisis. During her time there, she visited many refugee camps and interviewed people from Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq and Sudan. As a result of this experience, she gained immense independence and intercultural skills.
When she’s not working, she enjoys keeping up with entertainment and following all the latest celebrity news. She loves to watch award shows and go to live concerts, as music is one of her main interests. She also loves family Disneyland trips and found a new appreciation for going to the beaches here on the Central Coast.
