Throw yourself back to 1993, when Dominique Sachse was starting off at KPRC 2 as the morning traffic anchor

I broke social media's rules this week by posting a Throwback Tuesday with Dave Ward interviewing President George Bush, so I'm correcting things with a real Throwback Thursday. Now way am I getting a #TBT citation!

Here is a #TBT people are always jonesing for...early video of Dominique Sachse's television career.

That's right, Ms. Sachse started off at KPRC 2 doing morning traffic and you can see it for yourself in this clip. She was on the air with anchor Dan O'Rourke and meteorologist Roland Galvan who died at the age of 48 back in 2005.

I've probably told this story before, but I met Sachse back then when I was picking up some tape at KPRC for my boss. She was very nice and showed me around the channel 2 studio a bit.

Sachse first got some fame in the Houston market as a DJ on Mix 96.5 KHMX.

Another famous KPRC traffic anchor, you might have heard of her, Jennifer Reyna, also got her start in radio at 101 KLOL. You'll see people occasionally posting photos of her Miss Rockwear 2003 win.

By the way, if you have any audio, photos, paraphernalia from the 101 KLOL days, email me! I need to see them for my documentary on the iconic Houston rock station! I'm also looking for 97 Rock and 100.3 KILT rock stuff too!
