Tannya graduated from UCLA in 1995 with a degree in Political Science and Communications.  Her lifelong ambition had been to be a television journalist.  She worked part-time for a number of television stations during her school years, and got her first on-the-air reporting job at a small station in Lima, Ohio.  In 1998 she moved to KCOY Channel 12 News, a CBS affiliate, in Santa Maria, California.  She started as the weekend weather anchor and a reporter and substitute news anchor during the week.  After two years she was appointed to the lead anchor for the evening news.   See Tannya report on the Clinton scandal here! (1.1 meg mpeg file).

Update Nov. 2002:  Based on the popularity and success of Tannya's news anchoring at KCOY,  she received offers from stations in Philadephia, Cleveland and other eastern cities.  However  her year in Lima convinced her that she is not a cold weather person.  So she resigned from KCOY in August 2002 and moved to Hawaii to look for a job there.  In October, after interviewing all three news stations, she accepted a job as reporter and fill-in anchor at Fox Channel 2 KHON, the lead news station there.  After just a few weeks on the job she won an exclusive interview with President Bill Clinton.  If we can get a tape of this, I will post it here.

Update Jan. 10 2003:  Tannya was appointed as co- anchor for the Channel 2 News Morning Show http://www.khon.com/khon.asp .   She had been substituting there and was doing a terrific job by all accounts.  This promotion establishes Tannya as one of the leading journalists in the Hawaiian market.   Tannya and her co-host, Chris Matthews have the leading morning news show in Hawaii, capturing more market share than all competitors combined.
