Maryal Miller

This season of HomeStretch is hosted by Maryal Miller, a Phoenix-area journalist.

Maryal's love for reporting began at a young age with a passion for the truth and an inquisitive personality. She continued to develop her love for field reporting while she was in high school, helping her school newspaper get up and running in its first year of print.

After high school, she moved from her hometown of Okemos, Michigan, to Arizona, where she was accepted into the prestigious Arizona State University Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Barrett, The Honors College.

Since graduating summa cum laude in 2007, Maryal has been tackling the wide world of media from every angle. She traveled across the U.S. as a producer and writer for the inspirational nationally syndicated television show NASCAR Angels, a show that finds deserving people, fixes their cars and shares their stories. From there she became a reporter on the groundbreaking national-news television show RightThisMinute. She now works full time for SheKnows as a producer.

Maryal isn't just a star in front the camera. She has traveled all over Arizona hiking, eating and adventuring — and interviewing the state's most notable personalities as a regular contributor to one of Arizona's oldest and most celebrated travel publications, Arizona Highways.

When Maryal is not reporting and conducting on-camera interviews, she lives a weekend life as a rehab/renovation addict. When she was young, Maryal's mom included her in her many house-flipping endeavors, and ever since, they've been partners in crime — taking on any home project they can get their hands on. Maryal's love for interior design and taking a space or piece from drab to fab has taken her on some unexpected and comedy-inducing journeys that have made the end results much more rewarding while providing plenty of war stories to tell.

For Maryal, being a part of HomeStretch is a dream come true as it perfectly marries her love of interior design with her passion for sharing an amazing story!
