Tiffany McCall joined the WKRG News 5 as an Online Producer/Reporter in August 2011 and is thrilled to have the opportunity to bring tech-savvy stories to the viewers of the Gulf Coast! Tiffany caught the “news bug” while in high school, where she had the opportunity to bring the morning announcements to her peers in a daily segment called “Around Brookwood in Minutes.” She went on to receive a scholarship in Track and Field to Georgia State University, earning her degree in Journalism and Mass Communications with a minor in English. While attending college in Atlanta, she interned at WAGA Fox 5 News, The CW and Radio One. She also reported news for WRAS Atlanta, Georgia State University’s radio station. Tiffany landed her first paying job in news as a Graphic Artist/Production Assistant at a local news station here in Mobile. Through hard work, she was promoted to Morning News Producer a year later. Tiffany loves the Arts (visual, literary and performing arts), cooking and baking, spending time with family and friends and doing what she can to help others.
