Title: Multi-Media Journalist

Hello, Aloha, Annyeonghaseyo, Hey, ya'll

Taylor joined the WTVA team in July 2018 as a reporter.

Those are just a few of the ways Taylor Smith has been saying hello in the different states and countries she has lived in.

Being a military brat most of her life, she ended up in the sunshine state and graduated from Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton with a degree in broadcast journalism.

She was a part of the radio and TV station, where she was a sports director for two years. She also interned at NBC 6 in Miami and CBS12 West Palm Beach.

When she isn’t in the newsroom, she loves being in a pumped crowd for sports games, going for runs, being in the sun at the beach and fulfilling her sweet tooth craving.

Taylor is excited to make a difference in her new community and continue to work on her journalism skills. She loves Tupelo’s Southern hospitality.
