Dominique Sachse reveals all on YouTube

KPRC 2's Dominique Sachse has already conquered TV, so why not YouTube too?

Last year, KPRC 2 mega star anchor Dominique Sachse launched her own YouTube channel and it only proves the traditional media folks can conquer the new one. With nearly 43,000 subscribers and counting, Sachse is amassing quite the digital audience.

Now, I don't usually watch her channel's videos unless I'm prepping on getting my glam metal band "IFB" back together since most of the topics cover hair and makeup trends/advice. But this week, Sachse did a Q&A with viewers which gave us more insight into the anchor's life. Oh, and if the answers aren't revealing enough, it appears she records from her elegant home bathroom.

First of all, did you know Sachse's first name came from the work of Ayn Rand? That's right...taken from the character of Dominique Francon in The Fountainhead! Here's the CliffsNotes version.

Sachse also answers questions on her blended family, her favorite color to wear, dealing with haters who "have keyboard courage," and even her tattoos? Well, just watch to find out more about the last one. And no, it's not this tattoo.

Overall, I think you will find it a pretty uplifting and honest video. Personally I need to follow her advice and get more sleep. Enjoy!

And here is a personal tease...I'm going to use Sachse's social media work as a person to emulate in my "Creating Your Brand Through the Power of Social Media" presentation this weekend. It all goes down at the "NewsGathering: Diversity in the Digital Age" conference taking place at Rice University on Saturday.

    1. She didn't conquer anything. She paid people, like she pays her nanny, to develop a fake image and to feed her ego by pushing out stories and fakeness that no one (except her self-created "viewer requests") wants to hear.

      It's nauseating how she seems to have paid Shelby Hodge, Culture Map, Joy Sewing and the Chronicle for placed self promotion. It's sacrilegious that she appears to have now bought positive coverage byour last bastion of media accountability....Mike McGuff.

      Say it ain't so, McGuff!

  2. I, much like the other anchors and reporters at our station, appreciate Dominique's insight and wisdom. We all watch her tutorials and learn a lot from them. Say what you will about appearance/presentation but that is--undeniably--a large part of the business that doesn't always come naturally. She is a kind, friendly and gracious person and I am happy to work alongside her!

    1. What insight and wisdom? It's sad that you think she has this, because of the way she " appears" to look. It's amazing how much makeup, hair and plastic surgery can make people think you are just so amazing and talented. It is so sad, it actually makes me so upset. I just really don't get how so many people believe everything they see; especially about looks. Is it too much to question, or are people just not very intelligent? I just don't get it. If she is really all the things you mentioned and got her job because of these things, why doesn't she admit the truth about what she has had done and why doesn't she go on the air without all of this, even for one day? I would have more respect for her, if she actually did this. As a woman, I just find it sad that so many women in radio and TV get jobs based not only on looks, but on FALSE looks.

    2. If only plastic surgery could fix your soul. What meaness, what venom!

    3. I know. I'm just such a horrible human being. How dare I point out when someone has had plastic surgery, wears makeup and uses those things to get ahead. I really should be put in jail, or sent to hell! If you think what I wrote is mean and pure venom, then you must have a very hard time dealing with people in this world. Please work on your character and integrity, so you will start valuing women for talent and hard work and not all the fake things.

  3. If SD is that new Donchey hire, then she's as naive as she is unqualified for the job she "earned" coming from internet and hokie pokie past jobs.
    Now go get Dom some coffee...

  4. Hilarious comments!

    And, having seen many stories on Sachse on this site in the past where most people express their displeasure with so many things about her, I can only surmise that Mr. McGuff is either censoring a lot of comments on this story, or people have finally stopped reading her own ego inflating articles.

    1. The truth is, most of the anti-Sachse and anti KPRC comments are from the same poster using the Anonymous or 'Sucksplenty' handle. He ( yes a he) even responds to his own comments.. Administrator?

    2. Um, can you not read, or comprehend what you are reading? I actually stated above that " I'm a woman." I don't know about the other anon, but you are wrong about us being the same person. Just because someone states the truth about someone, or has a differing opinion than you, does not mean they are " anti" anyone, or that there is something wrong with them. I think you are the same person who calls people " evil," " mean," etc., if they don't agree with you. Administrator?

    3. When one keeps flogging the same horse, using the same vocabulary for more than four years, this reader has the right to conclude that there is an agenda. I'm out.

    4. The fact these two posts were submitted 2 minutes apart tells me that YOU are the same person. Instead of defending an egomaniac news reader, use your time on something more productive.

    5. Look, I'm not going to argue with you any longer. We are not the same person. You can choose to believe that, or choose not to . I don't give a flying you know what!

  5. I doubt it. Whenever she's in a story on the Houston Chronicle website the commenters are like 40 to 1 in opposition to her. It seems to be a cottage industry in Houston to dislike her.

  6. I agree, whenever there's a story regarding her, these pointless comments about her pop up. I'm not a big fan of hers either but that same person doesn't need to post the same BS about her whenever a story about her comes out. DON'T LIKE HER, DON'T READ IT!!!

    1. So, you should only post when you like something? Why are you posting about these people then? Shouldn't you take you own advice? Your comment and the others are pretty "pointless" too. I think you are the other guy posting under " Rich."

    2. I am not any other person on here, shows how much you know.

  7. Considering her track record of image crafting, I sense her claim on being named after Dominique Francon is nothing more than revisionist history to milk more media.

    And, "no", dimwitted conspiracy theorist who posted earlier, I am not the one responsible for all these anti-Dominique comments. Accept the fact that her act is old and people see through her and her shallowness.

  8. Agreed that Sara chick is horrible

    1. I scrolled through her Twitter posts. She has a high opinion of herself and her opinions.
      I wonder if we fiancé works at KPRC and that's how she hit the job. Lord knows she didn't get it based on talent.

  9. That "Amen" response above was a reply to 10/09/2015 06:46 PM. It was misplaced.

  10. I actually watched tonight's 6PM news and was shocked to see that granny was rocking great great grandpa's purple velvet Hugh Hedner retro smoking jacket on air, white scarf and all.
    And she wants to be pompous enough to offer fashion advise?
