Crysty Vaughan (Mornings/Midday)
"This is home”. Born and raised in Irmo, I am a proud native of Columbia. In a business that caters to change, I have been a constant at ABC Columbia News since 1995.
I am an Emmy-nominated journalist. I anchor Good Morning Columbia weekdays from 5 a.m. - 7 a.m.
I also anchor ABC Columbia News Midday at 12:30 p.m.
I am blessed to be able to bring the news to a community I grew up in.
Through the years, I have worked my way up the ranks…taking on every role in the newsroom from producer and reporter to anchor. I just can’t seem to leave this place!
I have received several awards, including an Associated Press award for consumer reporting and an Emmy Nomination for our news coverage of a deadly plane crash.
I have had the opportunity to cover some of the biggest stories in the state, from politics to Presidential visits. One of my favorite interviews, a one on one with Herman Boone, the real coach who inspired the movie “Remember the Titans.”
I feel honored to be trusted with the responsibilities of delivering news and information that’s important to the community I live in.
I am a graduate of Irmo High School and a graduate of Winthrop University. I am married to a former television reporter. I am a mommy. My husband and I are working on a major project: raising two young sons and a golden retriever…oh, and simply trying to keep our house intact.
