Crystal Howard

Reporter

Crystal is a proud Columbus, Mississippi, girl bringing her talents from Memphis, Tennessee, to Savannah, Georgia.

She moved to Memphis for college where she bled blue as a University of Memphis tiger alumna.

Crystal joins us from our sister station, WMC Action News 5 in Memphis, where she got her start in news. She started out running prompter and marking scripts as a production assistant until she worked her way up as a photographer. She climbed the ladder a little more and worked as a weekend reporter in Memphis until she was ready to move up again. Crystal is no stranger to jumping out of a comfort zone. That's how she landed a job at WTOC as a full time reporter.

When Crystal isn’t out telling a story and making connections with everyone she meets, you can catch her spending time with her beautiful family, shooting a little pool or bringing the country of Mississippi to Savannah in some kind of way. She also enjoys reading a good suspense novel.

If you see her big ole smile out somewhere, she won’t bite! Speak up! She loves people!
