Tawny Young was a reporter that covered stories on Green Lanterns Hal Jordan and John Stewart.

Tawny Young worked for California-based KLAQ TV. Though there was initially some attraction between Young and Stewart, it ended when she revealed his identity on national television.[1]

"Excuse me. I don't think you're welcome here."

She later learned that John started a romantic relationship with the alien Katma Tui, and she focused her xenophobe attitude toward the alien Green Lanterns that settled on Earth[2]. She pressed the Green Lanterns to a point that Kilowog slapped her out of their Citadel, leaving an even worse impression of them.[3]

She later became one of the hosts of popular daytime "coffee and lipstick" talk show The Scene for WBAS TV in Central City, sharing hosting duties with Lia Briggs, Vicki Vale and Cokie Walters.


  • Although this character was originally introduced during DC's Earth-One era of publication, their existence following the events of the 1985–86 limited series Crisis on Infinite Earths remains intact. However, some elements of the character's Pre-Crisis history may have been altered or removed for Post-Crisis New Earth continuity, and should be considered apocryphal.
