Fort Worth-based NBC5 has hired Ellen Bryan as a reporter for its early morning newscasts.

Bryan’s bio was posted Friday, May 9th, on the station’s website. She arrives from ABC 36 in Lexington, KY and is a former Miss Ohio 2011 who competed in the 2012 Miss America pageant.

The Ball State University grad also received a Duke of Edinburgh Gold Medal Award after riding a bike 850 miles to raise money for children’s hospitals, NBC5 says.

NBC5 has two full-fledged Miss Americas in its past. The pageant’s 1967 winner, Jane Jayroe, was the station’s featured 6 and 10 p.m. woman anchor from 1980 to 1984. The station was better known as KXAS-TV back then.

Miss America 1989, Gretchen Carlson, was a weekend anchor and reporter for the station in the late 1990s. She currently has her own show on Fox News Channel.
