Meryll joined Jim Owens Entertainment as the producer of the weekly series "This Week in Country Music," which became the popular TNN series "Crook & Chase," which she also produced.
Meryll joined the NewsChannel 5 team in 1987 as the Executive Producer of "Talk of the Town." She co-anchored NewsChannel 5's Weekend Morning Report for three years, before being named to her current position as co-host of TOTT.
