NYFA Broadcast Journalism Alumni George Colli and Alyssa Taglia at WTNH/TV8 Connecticut

NYFA Broadcast Journalism Alumni George Colli and Alyssa Taglia at WTNH/TV8 Connecticut

November 6, 2017 ABC-affiliated station WTNH/TV8 in New Haven, Connecticut, the first television station in New England, now features two NYFA Broadcast Journalism School graduates.

This month, award-winning journalist and NYFA Broadcast Journalism alumnus George Colli took over as lead reporter on the News8 Investigative Team. WTNH also features NYFA Broadcast Journalism alumna and multimedia journalist Alyssa Taglia as the temporary traffic anchor for "Good Morning CT."

Before moving to WTNH/TV8, George reported for Cox Media from Washington DC, appearing on stations across the United States, as well as reporting for NBC-Connecticut. He is a graduate of NYFA's 1-Year Broadcast Journalism Conservatory, and in 2017 was awarded the most prestigious honor in American journalism, an Alfred I. duPont-Columbia University Award.

"Thank for for all the support and mentorship," George said to Broadcast Journalism Chair Bill Einreinhofer. "I really appreciate everything NYFA did to train me for this career."

NYFA alumna Alyssa Taglia previously held the title of Miss Connecticut in 2016 with the Miss America Organization, and graduated from NYFA's 8-Week Broadcast Journalism Workshop in August 2017.

Congratulations to our talented and successful graduates at WTNH-TV8.
