Named after long-time journalist and former television news anchor Emerald Yeh, Emerald Morrow never knew she'd follow a similar path as her namesake.
But she did, and she's thrilled to be a reporter for the 6 News team. During her time at WLNS, Emerald became an award-winning journalist, taking home the first place honor from the Michigan Association of Broadcasters for an investigative story on methamphetamine. Her work also earned several other awards from MAB and the Associated Press.
Other professional highlights include covering Michigan State’s 2014 trip to the 100th Rose Bowl, as well as Oscar, Grammy and Fashion Week coverage. Emerald also worked for the broadcast division of the Associated Press during the 2008 Democratic National Convention, helping edit video and field produce events for the broadcast team. She has also shared her love for young people and writing through teaching interpersonal communications to high school students at the University of Missouri – St. Louis.
Prior to moving to Mid-Michigan, Emerald worked as an online news producer for KMOV-TV in her hometown of St. Louis, Missouri. She is also a freelance writer, with articles appearing in Black Enterprise, Crain's BtoB, Black MBA and Medill Magazine.
All of these experiences would not be possible without her training from her alma mater, Northwestern University's Medill School of Journalism (Go ‘Cats!). There she earned both her bachelor's and master's degree in magazine and broadcast journalism, respectively.
Emerald is absolutely in love with mid-Michigan, its natural beauty and the people in it. She enjoys every moment of being a part of this community, and hopes to make a difference by telling stories that matter to 6 News viewers.If you have a news tip or story idea you'd like to share, please email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
