Tyler Paley, a Monmouth County, New Jersey native, became a valued member of the WTOL news team and the Toledo community in August 2018, where he took on the role of a news reporter. You can catch his reports on our newscasts at 5 and 6 p.m. every weekday.
Tyler’s academic journey led him through Arizona State University’s Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication, where he achieved an impressive feat of earning three degrees, including two bachelor’s degrees and one master’s degree. During his time in Phoenix, he made a mark in the media industry, collaborating extensively with Pac-12 Network and freelancing with CBS, FOX Sports, and ESPN.
At the Cronkite School, Tyler’s relentless work ethic and fervor for storytelling propelled him into the spotlight as the go-to reporter for major events. He served as a four-semester anchor and reporter on Cronkite News, the student-run, faculty-led news division of Arizona PBS. His versatile reporting covered a wide spectrum, from the 2017 NCAA Final Four in Arizona to the Waste Management Phoenix Open and even the tragic mass shooting in Las Vegas in October 2017.
Tyler also honed his journalism skills through internships at The Arizona Republic and KPNX-TV, the Phoenix NBC affiliate station.
However, Tyler’s story isn’t confined to the studio or newsroom. His wanderlust is evident in his love for travel, both within the United States and around the world. He embarked on reporting trips to destinations like Israel, Mexico, and Puerto Rico. In the summer of 2018, he even backpacked across Europe, adding a global perspective to his experiences.
During his downtime, you’ll find Tyler passionately cheering for the Sun Devils and the New York Football Giants, a testament to his love for sports.
