AUSTIN, Texas — Tawaun Cole attended The University of Alabama, where she first got her start in news.

After graduation, she moved to Temple, Texas, and worked as a lead producer in the morning.

It didn't take long for her to move right down Interstate Highway 35 and settle in Austin as a Daybreak producer.

Now, as executive producer, she's able to really focus on the content that goes into the show and pick great stories for anchors Bryan Mays and Yvonne Nava. 

Tawaun was born in Los Angeles, California, but she considers herself a Texan because she was raised in Houston.

When she's not working, she enjoys reading just about any romance novel she can get her hands on – even writing some herself from time to time.

Tawaun not only loves to read, but she spends a lot of time cheering on her favorite sports teams and she always responds to a "Roll Tide!"
