About Me: Millaine fell in love with television at an early age and says, “When other kids wanted cartoons, I’d have on the local news.”

She started at Local 5 News as an intern and was then hired as a producer in 2005. For the first few years, Millaine came into work at 10:30 p.m. for the overnight shift, writing and planning the morning news.

Millaine eventually transitioned into a full-time reporter to continue her passion for telling stories about people in her hometown.
