Shreveport Anchor Wins Competition, Names All 45 U.S. Presidents in 29 Seconds

By Stephanie Tsoflias Siegel 

KSLA anchor Domonique Benn can do more than read the teleprompter.

She has a skill that won her first place in a local, friendly competition in Shreveport, La., on Presidents Day.

Benn knows the names of all 45 U.S. presidents, and on Monday she recited them in 29 seconds. That was the fastest of anyone who participated in the event, including other anchors and members of the public.


Last week, a local student went to the various news stations in town to train the anchors who participated using photos and flashcards.

Benn walked away with a crisp $50 bill.
