Emma Wheeler joined the Eyewitness News team as a Multimedia Journalist in January 2018.
As our Valdosta reporter, this is Emma’s first time experiencing life in a warm climate. She is originally from St. Paul, Minnesota, and began her career in Eau Claire, Wisconsin, spending two years there as a reporter.
Emma graduated in 2015 from Loyola University Chicago with a Bachelor’s Degree in Broadcast Journalism and a minor in Spanish. While there, she also interned at WTTW Chicago Tonight and worked with ESPN 3 broadcasting college games.
Outside of work, Emma spends most of her time with her barrel racing horse, Diego, exploring all the local parks and new cities around the region and rooting for the Vikings.
Emma is always excited to hear your stories. If you have any ideas, you can contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
