David Sentendrey’s Music and Journalism Career
David Sentendrey moonlights as an Emmy-winning journalist. The rest of the time, he’s a bassist for the Colby Dobbs Band.
He first learned to play the bass when his family moved to Cleveland. An older kid taught him a song, and he was unstoppable after that.
His dual career began when he was a student at Appalachian State University from 2004 to 2009. He met a few like-minded musicians and joined a band, playing at frat parties and sports bars. Sentendrey and the band even had a supposedly ghostly experience when they stayed at a purported haunted house to jam.
Sentendrey managed music, college gigs, his work at the campus publications, academics, and even ghosts to earn his bachelor’s degree in communications/journalism/English. Back in Charlotte, he was determined to have a career in both his passions: journalism and music.
Soon after graduating, he worked as a freelance writer and wrote for the Charlotte Bobcats Examiner. He was also a correspondent for The Enquirer-Journal from 2009 to 2013.
Sentendrey’s broadcast beginnings can be traced to his job at Fox 46 in Charlotte. He was an investigative reporter who shot, edited, and produced his segments from 2013 to 2019. He then moved to Dallas, Texas, where he is currently the reporter at KDFW.
Music was not on the backburner. Alongside friend, singer, and keyboarder Colby Dobbs and other musicians, he formed a band. The Colby Dobbs are artistic virtuosos who say they put original songwriting over performance.

Haddad left Fox 4 in August 2020 and in February 2021, began her new job at KRDO in Colorado Springs, Colorado. That same month, she and Sentendrey made their relationship Instagram official on Valentine’s Day.
They have a long-distance relationship. According to social media, they spend their vacations traveling together or, as most recently, with Sentendrey visiting Haddad in Colorado.
They even had a sweet photoshoot during Sentendrey’s last visit to Colorado. Sharing those pictures, Haddad revealed that their romance began when a certain reporter (Sentendrey) approached a certain producer at KDFW (Haddad) with “a bad excuse to whip up conversation.” It couldn’t have been that bad, because Haddad says she knew right then that Sentendrey was “the one.”
