WKYC-TV has announced Tiffany Tarpley will be joining the Channel 3 News team as a multimedia journalist (MMJ), according to Channel 3 News Director Brennan Donnellan.

Tiffany will report as part of Channel 3 News Today, anchored by John Anderson and morning meteorologist Hollie Strano from 4:30 a.m. and 7 a.m.

Tiffany is a Lorain, Ohio, native, so she is returning home from Milwaukee where she currently reports weeknights for WDJT-TV/CBS58. Before that, she worked at WUPW-TV in Toledo and at the Fox/CBS duopoly in Lima, Ohio.

"I'm excited about the opportunity to work in my home market and join the talented team of journalists at WKYC," she tells the Director's Cut Blog.

She is also a graduate of Bowling Green State University where she received her Bachelor of Science degree in Broadcast Journalism and was honored as a Broadcast Journalism Student of the Year. Her other studies included Lorain County Community College for two years.

In 2008, she was voted as Employee of the Year by Lin Television.

Look for Tiffany on the air in early March.
