Emily Swecker is excited to be living in the Heart of Virginia!
She officially joined the ABC 13 team as the morning multimedia journalist and reporter in November 2017.
Prior to ABC 13, Emily worked at FOX 24/ABC 16, a sister station, in Macon, Georgia. There she was the live morning reporter and fill-in anchor, covering breaking news, including following the escape and capture of two inmates who fatally shot two corrections officers and reporting in the middle of tropical storms, hurricanes, and tornadoes.
Emily isn’t a stranger to the area. She grew up in Pennsylvania, attended college at West Virginia University and has family in Virginia.
In her free time, you can find Emily traveling and exploring everything the area has to offer with her dog, Bailey.
If you see her out, be sure to say hello!
