KERA Hires Doualy Xaykaothao

KERA listeners know the name Doualy Xaykaothao even if they don’t recognize it. That’s because it looks funny. But it sounds like this: “Dwah-hlee Sigh-kow-tao.” Xaykaothao filed NPR reports from Asia. Now she’s a senior reporter for KERA. One might wonder why one of the Babes of NPR would take a job in Dallas. Rumor has it that she took the gig for two reasons. 1) She was impressed with the vibrant Laotian dining scene here. 2) The Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge.
