Alyssa Martin is thrilled to be back in her hometown of Tupelo.
She has called Tupelo home for more than 20 years and having the opportunity to join the WTVA 9 News team was always a dream.
Alyssa is a graduate of Tupelo High School. She attended Itawamba Community College and then continued pursuing her broadcasting and journalism degrees at Mississippi State University.
While in college, Alyssa had the opportunity to jump right into the news industry by working on the weekends as a reporter.
After spending a few years in local television, Alyssa moved to Huntsville, Alabama, to become the weekend anchor at the ABC affiliate, WAAY-TV.
During her years at WAAY, Alyssa also anchored the mornings, mid-day and afternoon newscasts.
She also helped relaunch the Breaking News Desk, keeping viewers updated on breaking news happening locally, regionally, nationally and internationally.
