Meaghan Smith is an award-winning journalist who is happy to be back home in the Tri-Cities.
After graduating from East Tennessee State University with a degree in Mass Communications, Meaghan got her first on-air reporting job in Hazard, Kentucky.
After a short time there, she was hired at WCYB as a reporter and producer. Meaghan's history with WCYB goes back more than 10 years, when she first interned at the station.
Meaghan left home for several years, after getting a job in sunny Southwest Florida. During her time there, she covered many stories that gained national attention, including devastating brush fires and the foreclosure crisis.
She's won several Florida AP awards and an Edward R. Murrow award.
Meaghan and her husband, who is also from the Tri-Cities, are thrilled to be back home and raise their daughter where they grew up.
