Originally from York County, Virginia, Talya graduated from Virginia Commonwealth University with a B.S. in Broadcast Journalism in May of 2019. While there, she interned at CBS 6 in Richmond and anchored, produced and reported for VCU Insight, a student-run newscast that aired on Richmond PBS.

When Talya isn't working, she likes to try new restaurants, go on adventures when the weather is nice and look for new shows to binge-watch. Talya is excited to call the Quad Cities home, meet new people, and explore what the area has to offer.
