Emily is back home in the Capital City after rejoining ABC Columbia in April 2014 as the morning producer and fill-in weather forecaster. Previously, Emily worked nights as the 11pm producer from 2011-2013, but she is excited to wake-up with viewers and help start their days.
Originally from the Youngstown area, Emily attended school at Ohio University and was a student in the E.W. Scripps School of Journalism. It was here that she received her broadcast journalism degree, her meteorology minor, and her specialization in geography. She also graduated Summa Cum Laude.
During her four years at OU, Emily became an active member of the news and weather team at WOUB, a PBS affiliate in the Columbus, Ohio market.The OU Geography Department also employed her as a forecaster for Scalia Lab and a Lab Teaching Assistant.
She got her start in the broadcast news at WHIZ in Zanesville, Ohio in September of 2008. She was a weekend anchor, weekend weather forecaster, reporter, and producer.
In November of 2010, Emily packed up and moved with her now-husband, Justin, to South Carolina. For about 10 months, she worked at another station in the Columbia area where she was a web content producer, assignment editor, reporter, and fill-in weather anchor. Emily's husband works with the Athletics Department at USC.
The couple was married in 2011 during a small ceremony in Ohio in front of family and friends.
On their one-year wedding anniversary, Emily and Justin bought a house in Blythewood, where they currently reside.
When Emily is not working, she enjoys cooking, walking along the River Walk, taking weekend trips to the beach or Savannah and playing with her dog, Maggie. You can also catch Emily and Justin on Sundays, during football season, on the sidelines at Carolina Panthers games.
If you see Emily out and about, be sure to say, "Hi!" She would love to hear from you.
