    An Emmy award nominated sports reporter, Kendrick is a born and raised Louisvillian. Hegrew up in J-town, but graduated high school from Fern Creek in 1993. He is the son of Milton and Mattie Haskins. His dad owned Haskins Barber Shop on 22nd and Kentucky for many years before relocating to J-town, then retiring. His mom worked at J-town City Hall for many years before retiring.

    Kendrick attended Murray State University, graduating in 1998. While a student at Murray, he interned at WLKY under Fred Cowgill, now Wave sports director, Kent Taylor, Dave Reynolds, and Keith Bavarro. He was an actual intern for one summer, but went back every summer and Christmas break until he graduated. After finishing school, he worked as a production assistant at WLKY before leaving for an editing position at Wave 3.

    He now has worked at WAVE3 for 17 years. He started as a nightside editor, then moved to the morning show editor. Shortly, after that, Kendrick was moved to morning photographer, all the while, still shooting high school football games on Friday nights. In 2005, he was happily moved to full-time sports photographer where he won the Kentucky News Photographer Association’s first place award for highlights in 2006. In 2010, he was awarded the opportunity to report, and one year later he was blessed with the Sunday sports anchor position. Over the years, he has covered the Kentucky Derby, Orange Bowl, four straight Final Fours including national championships for both UK and UofL, three College World Series, two Little League World Series, NASCAR, the Ryder Cup, PGA Championship, and countless UK, UofL, IU, and area high school sports.

    In the fall of 2016 Kendrick was inducted into the Fern Creek High School Hall of Fame, by far his most memorable accomplishment to date.
