    Myriam Masihy is a 13-time Emmy award winning investigative reporter for Telemundo 51 and NBC 6 South Florida. Myriam has dedicated her 19-year television career to addressing viewers’ concerns and working to solve problems in the community.

    She currently works as part of the NBC6 Investigators, NBC6 Responds, Telemundo 51 Responde and Telemundo 51 Investiga teams. Previously, she created a segment at Univision 23 called “El 23 A Tu Lado.” The Miami-Dade State Attorney’s Office has called her work “an instrumental tool in helping uncover scams that affect consumers.”

    In 2009, Myriam exposed mortgage foreclosure rescue scams that helped the Attorney General of Florida shut down several companies. During that time, Regional Deputy Attorney General Cindy Guerra said "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 an investigative reporter in South Florida, 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.”

    She 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 400 foster and underprivileged children in South Florida.
