With the show now in it's 4th year, Tampa Bay's Morning Blend Host, Natalie Taylor, is excited to be dancing in this year's Dancing with Stars!
The Ohio-native and Bowling Green State University grad, spent over a decade as a host, reporter and anchor for FOX Sports. Six of those years, Natalie was in Atlanta with FOX Sports South/Sport South where she covered everything from collegiate sports, mainly the SEC, to NASCAR and the NHL. She's appeared on many other regional networks like FOX Sports Florida, FOX Sports Midwest, Comcast Sports Southeast and national networks like ESPN, HDNet, SPEED, Versus.
For two years in 2010, Natalie moved back to the Buckeye State as an Anchor and Reporter for the ABC and FOX affiliate in Columbus. She got a taste of morning television as a personality for “Good Day Columbus”. During this time, Natalie met her husband, fellow broadcaster Walter Allen, and then joined FOX Sports Ohio to cover the NHL’s Columbus Blue Jackets.
For an ironic, twist of fate, Natalie and Walter chose to get married on Sanibel Island before they knew they’d be moving to Florida a few months later. Needless to say, the couple is ecstatic to call the Sunshine State home and happy that they were able to start their family here in Tampa Bay. Born late 2016, Natalie and Walter became parents to daughter, Alexandra.
