Meredith Helline

Meredith Helline moved from the Bluegrass state to the beach to join the WMBF News team. She is the 7 p.m. and 11 p.m. anchor, and also reports. She started at WMBF in February 2016 as the live morning reporter, eventually moving to the weekend evening anchor position before her current weekday spot. Meredith was born and raised in Louisville, Kentucky. She graduated from the University of Kentucky with a major in Broadcast Journalism and minor in Political Science. She won numerous awards for her college work at the UK Student News Network, where she reported, anchored and produced. Meredith took home the Best in Show award and scholarship for the overall College TV category at the 2016 Kentucky Associated Press Broadcasters Awards. She also won both first and second place in the Best News Story TV category, and was honored to win the overall Best College Television Reporter award as well. Meredith interned at NBC's TODAY in New York City the summer before graduation, and brings to WMBF skills she learned from veteran journalists as an intern at WLKY-TV in Louisville, Kentucky, LEX-TV and Rupp Arena Marketing in Lexington, Kentucky and WCBD-TV in Charleston, South Carolina. However, her summer at TODAY still remains the best summer of her life so far (hands down!). Meredith works hard to tell you what's happening in your community and is always hunting for stories. In her spare time she enjoys the beach, road trips, binge watching Netflix, working out and eating out at local restaurants along the Grand Strand.
