Mye Owens joined the WKRN news team in December 2020. She is excited to be back in her hometown of Nashville, TN!
Mye is a proud graduate of Father Ryan High school and went on to graduate from the historic Fisk University in Nashville, TN, with a Bachelor of Science Degree in English and Psychology. She then went on to Syracuse, N.Y., where she received her Master’s in Broadcast and Digital Journalism from the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications.
While attending Syracuse University, Mye served as a student reporter, covering issues concerning the everyday student. While earning her degree, she spent her Christmas break interning with WAKA, in Montgomery, AL. She also interned with Spectrum News in Syracuse, New York.
Her most memorable experience is interning with WSAV-TV as a Washington News Correspondent. While in D.C., she had the chance to cover issues concerning women in politics, as well as follow Brett Kavanaugh as he made his way through the capitol as President Trumps Supreme Court nominee.
After leaving Washington D.C., Mye went on to work for KETK News in Tyler, Texas, where she worked as a general assignment reporter, covering everything from politics to crime. Her most memorable stories were focused on the COVID-19 Pandemic. In a series called “Beating the Virus” she sat down with five families who contracted the virus and beat it.
As a member of the National Association of Black Journalists, she enjoys telling the stories that impact all. When she’s not in the newsroom, you can find Mye traveling or eating. Her bucket list has just one item on it, and it’s to travel to every single place in the world. Mye’s model is, “God didn’t create it, for us not to see it.” Now, she is looking forward to calling Nashville home again and sharing the stories of those who live here.
