Tygra de Mello

Tygra de Mello joined WOAY as a weekend technical news director in July 2021, after seeing how news works from the technical point of view, she decided to make the jump into reporting in October 2022.

After reporting for a while, Tygra became interested in anchoring and began training and practicing.

Now, she is the prime-time anchor for WOAY. She went to the desk during the summer of 2023.

Tygra is an Oak Hill native and has lived in West Virginia her entire life. When she was younger, she would watch WOAY at a relative’s house.
She also has earned an associate degree in criminal justice law enforcement.
When she isn’t out reporting or anchoring, she can be found at home cuddling her cats and dog or playing video games!
