Miya Shay celebrates 20 years with abc13 KTRK

Miya Shay

Miya Shay is celebrating 20 years with the abc13 KTRK Houston!

In two decades, Shay, who excels at the Houston government beat, has covered presidents and even reported from China three times for KTRK.

The Lone Star EMMY award-winning reporter came to Houston in December 2002 from WOOD TV8 Grand Rapids, Michigan.

Shay's previous two jobs would be future predictors of her Houston television career.  Now hear me out on this one.

While reporting for KAKE Wichita, Kansas, Shay met future channel 13 sports director Greg Bailey.

OK, this one is more of a stretch, but Shay got her first TV job at WAAY 31 News Huntsville, Alabama.  What is Huntsville, Alabama known for?  Well, as my wife knows, since she attended, Huntsville is the home of Space Camp.  Ok, I told you I was reaching for this, but obviously Houston is home of NASA's Johnson Space Center.  

The Syracuse University grad worked at CNN Headline News out of college, and from what I understand, was friends with Newsy's Scott Withers

Shay married a well-known Houstonian, too.  State Rep. Gene Wu and Shay have two sons.
