The KOAM website offers the following description of Ms. Bach:
Tawnya came to the Four States in the Fall of 2005 after working as weekend anchor at KRBC in Abilene, Texas, and as assignment editor & producer at KCTV in Kansas City. Tawnya earned her degrees in journalism and theatre & film from the University of Kansas at Lawrence. Her hometown is Jetmore, Kansas, a rural community with a population of about 900. Tawnya, nicknamed “T-Bach,” admits to being afraid of mice & rats following a bad experience at a Kansas City haunted house!
Miss Scanlon followed in the footsteps of former KOAM morning anchors, such as Sarah Pierik, Lori Pritchard, and the original hosts Toby Cook and Andy Carson, all of whom have moved on to bigger markets.
