Emma Jerome joined the KOIN 6 News team as a morning reporter in August 2021.
Before moving to Portland, Emma spent the beginning of her career just a few hours down the Willamette at KEZI 9 News in Eugene, Oregon.
There, she worked as a reporter and weekend anchor covering stories that have plagued the valley even winning an Emmy as part of a team that covered Oregon’s devastating 2020 wildfire season.
Emma is originally from the Seattle area and graduated from Washington State University (Go Cougs!) and began her career at KEZI in Eugene. She is Pacific Northwest born and bred and she plans to keep it that way.
Emma has an affinity for all things pop culture; if you go to the movie often, chances are you’ll see her there enjoying whatever Marvel flick was just released.
To blow off steam, she loves to head outside and play basketball in the park… although her free throw could use some work.
