Sunrise 7 Sun-Thu
Emily is from North Georgia where she was born and lived for her entire life until accepting the Morning Reporter and Weekend Anchor/Producer position at Channel 7 in October of 2017. Emily says the number one question people ask her once they hear that is, “What brings you to Wisconsin?” Emily admits it’s the job with Channel 7 that brought her here, but it’s the great people in the community and fun coworkers who have helped her to love life in North Central Wisconsin.
Prior to her cross country move to Wausau, Emily graduated from the University of Georgia with a magma cum laude degree. Though her position with Channel 7 is her first “real” job out of college, she had numerous internships while she was pursuing her education which most notably includes a news intern position with WSB-TV in Atlanta and a work-study program in which she spent the summer in Los Angeles studying the broadcast and television industry.
Emily has a passion for finding hard news stories and following politics and policies. Her interest in journalism was inspired by her grandfather who taught her to have a love for writing and by her grandma who taught her never to back down for what you know is right.
If you ever see Emily out and about, it will probably be at a park or running trail. In high school, Emily was a cross country runner and running is something she still enjoys today. Otherwise you might see her representing Channel 7 at one of the station’s many community events. She also enjoys reading and is taking voice lessons to become a better singer. Lastly an important fact to know Emily says she LOVES pizza.
