Myriam Masihy an investigative reporter for NBC 6 South Florida. She joins the NBC family after a 12-year career with Univision where she received numerous recognitions for her investigative work, including six Emmy Awards and 14 Emmy nominations.
While at Univision, Myriam created a segment called “el 23 a tu lado” which was considered by the Miami-Dade State Attorney’s Office as an instrumental tool in helping uncover scams that affect consumers. In 2009, she exposed mortgage foreclosure rescue scams that helped the Attorney General of Florida shut down several companies including Lincoln Lending. Regional Deputy Attorney General Cindy Guerra says "while it is impossible to calculate the exact number of people that were spared from scams by virtue of Ms. Masihy’s reports, it is clear a great number of victims were affected by her reports. Only hours after Ms. Masihy’s reports aired, our agency received thousands of complaints from consumers who called to report being victims of Lincoln Lending’s unscrupulous actions. Prior to her reports airing we had received less than 50 complaints, which were the basis of our lawsuit. Ms. Masihy’s reports made a real difference in the South Florida Hispanic community."
Before working as their investigative reporter, Myriam was the Broward Bureau correspondent for Noticias 23. She also worked as a news anchor and general assignment reporter for Univision 41 in New York and as a correspondent for the network shows “Noticiero Univision”, “Ultima Hora” and “Primer Impacto.” Myriam has a bachelor’s degree in Communication from UNIACC in Santiago, Chile and is married to Gino “Latino” Reyes whom she met while working in radio. They have two beautiful daughters, Gabriela and Fahra who bring meaning to their lives. Inspired by their two adopted daughters, in 2009 Myriam and Gino created the charity organization called Kakes 4 Kids that celebrates the birthdays of over 230 foster and underprivileged children in South Florida.
