Meredith Helline moved from the Bluegrass to the beach to join the WMBF News team in February 2016. Louisville, Kentucky will always be home, but Meredith is thrilled to start her career in Myrtle Beach.
She graduated from the University of Kentucky in December 2015 with a Journalism major and Political Science minor. She reported, anchored and produced for the UK Student News Network, was a member of Delta Delta Delta sorority, played some lacrosse and watched a ‘little’ basketball in college.
Meredith interned at WLKY-TV in Louisville, Rupp Arena and WLEX-TV in Lexington, Kentucky and at WCBD-TV in Charleston, South Carolina (why she wanted to get back to SC!). The summer before graduation she interned at NBC’s TODAY in New York City for the summer. Calling it the time of her life, she says she feels lucky to have gotten the chance to meet and learn from many different people in the journalism industry before starting her own career.
Like many people, Meredith loves travel and adventure. Going new places, meeting new people and telling their stories is why she found a calling as a storyteller.
In her spare time you can catch Meredith hanging out with friends, at the beach, CrossFit or trying out a local restaurant. Don’t forget to say hello!
