Taylor Eaton is an anchor and reporter at WSAZ.

Taylor Eaton joined the WSAZ news team as a reporter in June 2014. She comes from Hurricane, WV, where she just recently moved.

She reporters every weekday and co-anchors First at Five.

Taylor has called Putnam County her home most of her life. Before that she lived in Kissimmee, Florida, but West Virginia is truly where her heart is.

Taylor graduated from the P.I. Reed School of Journalism, what is now the Reed College of Media, at West Virginia University with a bachelor's degree in television and a minor in sports communication. While she was there, she was actively involved in campus life and volunteered her time with several organizations. She also served as a WVU News main anchor for the school's newscast and as the Star City and Westover beat reporter. She loved her time in Morgantown, bleeds blue and gold, and will always be proud to call herself a Mountaineer!

Taylor grew up watching WSAZ and was proud to intern with the station during her junior year of college. During that time, she learned valuable experience that would eventually help to bring her back on the team as a full-time reporter.

When she isn't working, she enjoys traveling the world, participating in pageantry, judging and serving as an emcee at pageants, exercising, spending time with family and friends, cheering on her favorite New England sports teams, watching and attending sporting events and spending time outdoors.

She is very excited to be working close to her hometown and be back in the city she loves and knows so well.
