News 4 Reporter

Emily joined the KMOV team in July of 2012. She is thrilled to be back in St. Louis, and close to her hometown of Washington, Missouri.

She comes to News 4 from KMOV's sister station, WVEC in Norfolk/Virginia Beach, Virginia. While reporting in Hampton Roads, Emily covered everything from hurricanes and breaking news, to life at one of the country's favorite beach destinations. She also enjoyed learning more about our country's strong military community in an area with one of the nation's largest concentrations of military personnel. Emily reported on deployments and homecomings, as well as the extensive economic impact of the Navy, Coast Guard and Air Force installations in Hampton Roads.

Emily graduated cum laude from the Missouri School of Journalism. Cheering for the Mizzou Tigers is a family tradition, as she is a fourth generation graduate. Both parents and all three of her siblings attended the University of Missouri. She can't wait to make trips to Columbia this fall, as the Tigers take on the SEC.

While at Mizzou, Emily worked as a radio reporter, covering politics and the state legislature in Jefferson City. She also reported on-air, for the NBC affiliate KOMU.
