Emily Evans, Anchor
Emily Evans co-anchors the weekday morning newscast from 4:30 a.m to 7 a.m. on ABC 57 and from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. on the CW 25 with Drew Gardner. Outside of her duties as a morning anchor, Emily enjoys reporting on Notre Dame athletics, including football and men's and women's basketball.
She first joined ABC 57 as a Multimedia Journalist in June 2013 before she transitioned into a full-time role as an anchor. During her time as an MMJ, she's covered countless stories across Michiana and at the University of Notre Dame. Emily also shared dozens of reports that advocate for the people of northern Indiana and southwest Michigan, from severe weather coverage to health or crime alerts that help keep you and your family safe.
She previously worked in radio, at WPKO-FM and WBLL-AM as a local news reporter and anchor in Bellefontaine, Ohio. There, she covered news, weather and sports in Logan and Champaign counties.
Emily got her start in television news at WOUB-TV in Athens, Ohio where she worked as a reporter shooting, writing and editing local news stories for the station's evening newscast, Newswatch. She also anchored Newswatch, a 30-minute, live newscast that covered news throughout southeast Ohio and the Appalachian region during her time at WOUB.
Emily is a Midwest girl and proud of it. She was born and raised in Ohio, and attended Ohio University where she graduated from the E.W. Scripps School of Journalism. She majored in Broadcast Journalism and minored in History.
During her time at Ohio University, Emily interned for Central Ohio's News Leader, 10TV News in Columbus, Ohio. There she learned the importance of quality and balanced journalism, as well as making breaking news coverage the top priority.
She says her favorite stories are the ones that teach viewers something new about their community that they didn't know before. She also enjoys sharing stories that bring awareness to social issues and that help change lives for the better. Emily is committed to making a difference here in Michiana and finding and telling the stories in our community that matter to you.
Emily is proud to call Michiana home and is excited to be part of this great community. If she's not rooting on the Fighting Irish in her free time, you may find Emily enjoying the outdoors with a run on the riverwalk or exploring the great places to eat in the area with friends.
