Thalia Hayden is co-anchor of KMIR Today weekdays 5-7am and KMIR Midday, weekdays 11am-12pm.
Thalia joined KMIR News in February 2012 as Weekend Anchor. Before that, she reported and anchored for WPTV in West Palm Beach, FL, News 10 NBC in Rochester, NY and WCJB in Gainesville, FL.
Before making the jump in front of the camera, Thalia spent many years behind the scenes. In fact, her first day on the job after graduating from Seton Hall University, was the same day as the September 11th attacks. She was starting as a Production Assistant at Fox 5 News in Manhattan, and was thrown right into the mayhem. She says that experience changed her life, and helped her realize how vital the media is in our society.
Thalia also worked in other newsrooms in New York City, and spent two years as a Casting Associate for "51 Minds Entertainment" in Los Angeles.
Thalia says she is happy to be back in California, and can't get enough of the sun.
She says Palm Desert offers the ideal lifestyle.
In her free time, Thalia enjoys being outdoors, trying new restaurants, and staying fit through yoga and running.
