Teal Yost is an associate editor at Military Families Magazine. She brings more than a decade of storytelling experience to AmeriForce Media.
An award-winning journalist, Teal anchored and reported at NBC, CBS and Fox television stations in Texas and Iowa. She also produced and delivered live reports from the Chicago Board of Trade as a financial correspondent for Bloomberg Television.
Like military life, the life of a journalist is never boring. Teal has interviewed sitting presidents and rock stars. She's covered everything from devastating floods and deadly tornadoes to the federal government shutdown and IPOs for the latest tech start-up.
Television news provided unique insight into the military even before becoming a Navy spouse. Teal was one of the first journalists on the scene of the Fort Hood shooting massacre — reporting live for several hours as events unfolded. She was lucky enough to fly in an F-16 Thunderbird — wearing a g-suit and experiencing Diamond Cloverloops and Aileron Rolls to help publicize an air show.
Since leaving TV news she’s spent time as a Navy public affairs officer, content director for a nonprofit, SEO specialist, freelance writer and content strategist.
Teal holds a master's degree in journalism from Columbia University in New York. She received a B.A. in political science and theatre at Millikin University
Teal has five military moves under her belt. When not packing, PCS’ing or tripping over toy cars and train sets, she enjoys travel, spin classes and trying out new recipes. She’s currently based in Jacksonville, Florida with her husband and two sons.
