A native of Monmouth County, New Jersey, Tyler Paley joined WTOL and the Toledo community in August 2018 as a news reporter. You can catch him on our newscasts at 5 and 6 p.m. every weekday.
Tyler is a three-time graduate of Arizona State University’s Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication, including two bachelor’s and one master’s degree. During his time in Phoenix, Tyler worked extensively with Pac-12 Network and freelanced with CBS, FOX Sports and ESPN.
At the Cronkite School, Tyler’s tireless work ethic and passion for storytelling allowed him to become the go-to reporter for any major event. He was a four-semester anchor and reporter on Cronkite News, the student-run, faculty-led news division of Arizona PBS. He wore many hats, covering everything from the 2017 NCAA Final Four in Arizona, to the Waste Management Phoenix Open, to the mass shooting in Las Vegas in October 2017.
Tyler furthered his journalism experience with internships at The Arizona Republic and KPNX-TV, the Phoenix NBC affiliate station.
Tyler is probably best known for his inability to sit still, which compels him to travel both inside the United States and around the world. He’s made reporting trips to Israel, Mexico and Puerto Rico, and backpacked across Europe in the summer of 2018.
In his free time, you can find Tyler cheering on the Sun Devils and the New York Football Giants.
