Taylor Tannebaum joins the WHNT News 19 Sports Team as the new weekend anchor/reporter. She’s excited to be in the Tennessee Valley!

Taylor’s love for sports began before she could even walk, talk or play ball. Taylor was born and raised in South Florida. Her father worked in the sports memorabilia industry so her family held season tickets for the Miami Dolphins, Miami Heat, Miami Marlins, and Florida Panthers. She’s a die-hard fan unlike many fair-weather fans in Miami! Taylor played soccer growing up and was a lock-down cornerback for her high school flag football team. No, this wasn’t just powderpuff…it was real, gritty football!

Taylor realized her love for television at a young age after visiting the local station in Miami. When she found out she could combine sports and TV for a career, she was sold.

Taylor graduated from Florida State University in 2013 and began her broadcasting career right here in sweet home Alabama! She covered the Wiregrass as the weekend sports anchor/reporter at WTVY in Dothan. She’s already learned firsthand that college football means everything in the South and she’s excited to continue covering Alabama and Auburn. She’s also looking forward to covering the other great schools in the area as well as some of the best high school athletes in the state. And did somebody say hockey?!

Taylor loves getting to know people so if you have any story ideas or just want to say hey, email her at Taylor.Tannebaum@whnt.com. You can also follow her on Twitter, @TaylorTannebaum and on Facebook, Taylor Tannebaum WHNT.
