For many journalists, working at NBC’s 30 Rockefeller Plaza is the thing of dreams. For Sheldon Dutes ’07, it’s a dream come true.
Dutes’ hard work and charisma earned him a job at the NBC affiliate in New York, giving him the opportunity to walk into that famed “30 Rock” at the beginning of every workday.
A broadcast journalist with a commanding camera presence and an impressive ability to balance empathy and objectivity, Dutes has made a name for himself with network affiliates across the country. After graduating with a degree in American Studies, Dutes began his career on the edge of Notre Dame’s campus at WNDU, South Bend’s NBC affiliate. His success has taken him to networks in Charleston, Baltimore, and now, New York City.
