Nyah Adams

Anchor, Good Morning Northland/Multimedia Journalist


Nyah Adams began her journalist career at WDIO in July, 2023 and quickly moved into the anchor chair.  She officially became the anchor of Good Morning Northland in January. Nyah says she loves sharing stories about people in a place so close to home. She graduated from Hibbing High School in 2019 and grew up on the Iron Range.

Nyah graduated from St. Cloud State (go Huskies!) and double majored in Mass Communications with an emphasis in Journalism and Political Science. She believes you cannot be a journalist without also being an activist.

Nyah loves watching and covering college hockey. She won a national award from the Society of Professional Journalists in the category of Television Sports Reporting this fall for her work on former SCSU men’s hockey equipment manager, Jeremiah Minkel.

She also interned at Fox 9 in Minneapolis and spent time in the UK as an intern for the Alnwick Town Council. While there, she found a passion for traveling.

She says “my passion for new cultures and trying the unknown is what drives my love for journalism. I learn something new every single day.”

Nyah also loves anything outdoors, especially anything that involves being next to the water. Lake Superior is her favorite part about living in Duluth.

Nyah has fit in well with the WDIO family as a multimedia journalist, and she has also filled in at the anchor desk.
