Miranda Mason joined the WTVY team in September 2013 as a News/Sports reporter.
Miranda double majored at the University of Virginia and graduated in May 2013 with a degree in Political Science and Sociology.
Before coming to WTVY Miranda was a student reporter for ESPNU’s Campus Connection program. While with Campus Connection she was featured on ESPN3 and ESPNU highlighting UVA athletics. Miranda also interned with TheSabre.com during her time at The University of Virginia where she acted as a producer, editor and host of “The Cutting Edge” a weekly production covering the events of Virginia Athletics. She also conducted interviews with athletes and provided post-game coverage of every Virginia football and basketball game.
Growing up in Chesapeake, Virginia, Miranda learned to love sports at an early age. She began by being the only girl on her T-ball team and ultimately dedicated herself to soccer because football wasn’t an option. As a freshman, Miranda played soccer for the University of Mary Washington before making the decision to transfer to UVA.
When not on a sports field, Miranda enjoys going to the beach and spending time with her family and dog Nike. If you happen to run into Miranda out and about feel free to say hello and welcome her to Dothan!
