Dylan Lyons joined the Spectrum News 13 team as a multimedia journalist in July 2022.
Born and raised in Philadelphia, Dylan’s journey to journalism was fueled by his desire to tell stories that impact local communities. As a reporter, he’s honored to have the unique privilege of being a voice for the voiceless and making sure all communities and stories are treated fairly and equally.
Dylan is a proud University of Central Florida graduate with a degree in Journalism and Political Science — go Knights! During his time at UCF, Dylan reported and anchored for the UCF Knightly News, the student-run news station.
Before joining the News 13 team, Dylan reported and anchored for WCJB TV20, a local ABC affiliate in Gainesville. In 2020, Dylan was awarded the best “Politics/Elections Series” by the Florida Association of Broadcast Journalists. In 2021, he was a finalist for Investigative Reporting.
One of the most impactful stories Dylan had the opportunity to cover was about the murder of a 13-year-old girl; the story was especially moving for Dylan because it illustrated the importance of ensuring proper protections for the most vulnerable in our society.
When Dylan’s not at work, you can find him taking advantage of the Orlando area’s many different dining experiences and cuisines. He especially loves exploring Winter Park, Winter Garden, Celebration and or Downtown Orlando with his family and dog.
