Mycah Hatfield
Mycah Hatfield started reporting for ABC13 in June of 2019.

She is so glad to be back in Houston! Mycah grew up in the Spring area but has spent almost the last decade outside of Texas.

Previously, she reported in Tulsa, Okla. and Lafayette, La. Mycah covered countless natural disasters, the Baton Rouge Police Officer shooting, the Grande Theater shooting and all nine days of the historic Oklahoma Teacher Walk Out.

She has been part of Emmy-winning coverage of the August 2017 tornado in Oklahoma and won first place awards from the Associated Press and Oklahoma Society of Professional Journalists for a story highlighting athletes battle with opioids. Mycah was also given the Golden Heart Award from the Louisiana Humane Society for her work with animal cruelty cases. Most recently, she was given the Oklahoma Governor's Disability Employment Excellence Award for a series of stories highlighting adults with disabilities in her area.

Reporting is a passion for Mycah. She loves to be in the know and the first one to know. More importantly, she loves the chance to meet people in her community she otherwise might not cross paths with.

She is a proud University of Oklahoma graduate and a member of the Gamma Phi Beta sorority.

Even though she was away from the great state of Texas for years, she always made it a point to come back for the Houston Rodeo. Rodeo season is her favorite time of the year.

In her spare time, Mycah loves to watch Sooner Football, lounge by the pool and host dinner parties.

Mycah would love to hear from you, whether it is a simple "hello" or an idea for a story.
