Lifestyle Anchor

LaMyiah Pearlinia joined NewsChannel 20 and Fox Illinois as a Lifestyle Host and Producer.

LaMyiah is a "Saint Paul, Minnesota Girl," turned "Texan." She left Minnesota to study communication at Prairie View A&M University. During her time, she became a co-founder of PVAMU-TV, President of Club Chic Women Empowerment, and 2nd Vice President of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated Omega Gamma Chapter.

LaMyiah interned for KRIV Fox26 News in Houston, TX. She also became the very first Host Intern for Eyeconic Televison, Houston. During her internships, she was able to host red carper events in California and Texas. LaMyiah takes pride in being the first woman in her family to graduate from a Historical Black College University, also known as a HBCU.

After graduating with a B.A in Communications and a Minor in Social Work, the grad headed to Amarillo, TX where she worked a Morning Feature Reporter. Nearly two years later, LaMyiah headed on the road for Springfield, where she is now promoting businesses and organizations for Newschannel 20 Marketplace.

LaMyiah's family and friends consider her "a ball of energy." She's fun, optimistic, and likes to think she can crack a good joke here and there. She has a one dog, Ace Boogie, who sticks by her side. LaMyiah loves a good meal. Her favorite movie is The Lion King (the 90s version). Though she can't swim, she loves a good walk around a lake! If you ever see her with her pup around town, don't be afraid to say Hello!
