Anchor

Sarasota, FL

Emily Kinzer joined ABC7 in May 2019 and co-anchors the Good Morning Suncoast newscasts.

Before joining ABC7, Emily worked as a morning show Multimedia Journalist/fill-in Anchor in Indianapolis, Indiana for WISH-TV's six-hour morning show. Emily is Emmy-nominated for her work there as a Video Journalist. While in Indianapolis she was a Big Sister with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Indiana and considers it one of the most rewarding experiences.

Prior to her time in Indianapolis, Emily spent two years at ABC57 in South Bend where she covered everything from blizzards to historic flooding and stories at Notre Dame.

A Southern girl at heart, Emily was born and raised in Middle Tennessee. She graduated with honors from Middle Tennessee State University with a degree in Multimedia Journalism and a minor in Political Science. Emily got her start in radio while in college. She worked as a reporter/studio producer at WGNS News Radio in Murfreesboro, Tennessee during her last semester of college.

Growing up, Emily's favorite vacation was summer beach trips with her family so she's thrilled to be living and working in the Suncoast, not to mention year round warm weather!

Outside of the newscasts, Emily enjoys exploring outdoors, upcycling furniture, and trying new dog-friendly restaurants with her dog Dixie.
