Tanya O'Rourke grew up in Cincinnati.
At the age of three, Tanya's family moved to Finneytown, where she lived until graduating from Finneytown High School. She attended the University of Tennessee and the University of Cincinnati, where she received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree.
Tanya worked at WCPO-TV while finishing her BFA degree, first as a weekend assignment editor and writer, then as an associate producer for the morning show and field producer.
Upon completing her degree, she moved to Knoxville, TN, where she was a reporter at WBIR-TV and then at WATE-TV.
Wanting to come back to her hometown and to WCPO-TV, she moved back in 1993 to be a general news reporter. She spent 3 years anchoring the weekend Morning and Noon shows and is now the weekday Noon show anchor.
Outside of work, Tanya spends as much time as possible with husband Pete and their four children.
She is also a board member of the Diocesan Catholic Children's Home in Northern Kentucky.
