About the Author
Dominic Massa

Author Dominic Massa, a native of the New Orleans area, is Executive Producer and Special Projects Director at WWL-TV Channel 4, the CBS television affiliate in New Orleans.

During his career at WWL-TV, which began with a college internship, Massa has also served as producer of the station's top-rated 6:00 p.m., 10:00 p.m. and weekend newscasts, while also helping to produce coverage of elections, Carnival, special events and breaking news. He was part of the team that earned the George Foster Peabody, Edward R. Murrow and duPont-Columbia awards for continuing coverage of Hurricane Katrina in 2005.
Massa began working at WWL-TV just after graduation from Jesuit High School in New Orleans, and shortly before beginning his studies in communications at Loyola University New Orleans, where he was honored as the top broadcast journalism student at graduation.

A past president of the Press Club of New Orleans, Massa has also produced two documentaries on local television history for the city's PBS affiliate, WYES-TV: New Orleans TV: The Golden Age (regional Emmy award nominee) and Stay Tuned: New Orleans' Classic TV Commercials (winner of 1st place award for best documentary from the Press Club of New Orleans). Massa also co-produced Jefferson Parish Stories, a documentary highlighting the history of the New Orleans suburb. Working with producer/host Peggy Scott Laborde, he has also served as contributing producer, associate producer or production assistant on more than a dozen WYES-TV cultural history documentaries since 1992, as well as writing and producing feature stories for the weekly arts and entertainment review program Steppin' Out and the station's annual broadcast of the Rex ball and Meeting of the Courts of Rex and Comus.

Massa was named one of New Orleans Magazine's People to Watch in 2005 and honored as a "rising star" by the Greater New Orleans Broadcasters Association Hall of Fame. He has also been honored as one of Gambit Weekly's "40 Under 40."
