Taryn Mitchell, Morning Anchor


Growing up in the Windy City, Taryn always had a dream of making a life for herself on the sunny West Coast. As a child, she could be found propped in front of her family’s television screen watching Full House. She would watch Danny Tanner’s Wake Up San Francisco and know from there she wanted to pursue a career in TV.

Taryn’s first stop to getting there was to head down south to Bowling Green, Kentucky. It was there that she attended Western Kentucky University. During her time at the university, she studied both Communication Studies and Broadcasting and received a minor in Sales.

During the summer of 2018, Taryn interned at Hawaii News Now on the beautiful island of Oahu. She could be seen traveling all over the island covering stories all while taking time to soak up the sun.

Taryn is delighted to call the Central Coast her home. She is grateful to help tell your stories along with helping you start your day on Wake Up.

In her spare time, you can find Taryn out and about most likely at the beach with a smile. If you see her give her a hello.
