Mariah Harrison

Traffic reporter

Mariah Harrison is the traffic reporter on Good Day Tampa Bay. She joined the Good Day team in the studio after two years as a reporter with FOX 13. 

Mariah came to the Sunshine State from the Great Lakes State, Michigan. She graduated from Central Michigan University, where she studied broadcast and cinematic arts, French, and Spanish. 

While finishing her senior year, Mariah was promoted from intern to weekend morning producer at ABC 12 News in Flint.  Less than a year later she was offered a reporter position at WLNS TV6 in Lansing, Michigan’s Capital City. Within a year and a half, Mariah worked her way from part time producer/reporter to weekend morning anchor. 

Mariah spent over three years in Lansing, giving a voice to the under-privileged and following political news affecting the entire state. 

She was awarded by the Associated Press and Michigan Association of Broadcasters for her series on an apartment complex left in legal limbo where low-income tenants were choosing to sleep in the parking lot rather than their bug-ridden units. Her series on the Lansing School District helped spark a Title IX investigation by the Department of Education after two young female students were suspended after reporting their sexual assaults to their principal. 

Mariah is deeply ingrained in her community, volunteering her time to speak with both high school and college students about career choices while emceeing numerous charitable events. She has served on the board of directors for the local Habitat for Humanity affiliate. 

Mariah loves camping, photography, reading fiction novels, and attending music festivals, and can always be found listening to the latest episodes of her favorite podcasts.
