Emily Wahls

  • Five words/phrases that describe me:Talkative, Hard-Working, Dedicated, Cyclist, Cat-Mom
  • Hometown: Port Huron, Michigan
  • Education: Bachelor of Science in Meteorology from Central Michigan University
  • Experience: I was the weather intern with WLNS in 2012, and then I became the fill-in meteorologist in April of 2013. I joined the weekend crew in September 2013, and then moved to the weekday morning show in June 2014.
  • Most interesting assignment: I’d have to say ‘Free Coffee Friday!’ It’s a busy and fun day where I go live from different Biggby locations and hang out with our awesome TV-6 viewers.
  • I’m passionate about: My family and my cats, Eta and KP!
  • When I’m not forecasting: You can probably find me catching up on some much-needed sleep, or riding bicycles with my fiancé, Donnie.
  • Other places you may have seen her: I worked at Michaels Arts and Crafts in Frandor, so you may have seen me stocking those crafty shelves! I also dedicate my time to the Boys and Girls Club of Lansing and serve on the Board of Directors, so I’m in and out of there quite often.
  • Favorite place in Mid-Michigan: Frances Park and Sleepy Hollow State Park
  • What I love most about MidMichigan: I love all the festivals that go on throughout the year. There is always something to do and somewhere to go for entertainment. I also really like how we can get the “big city feel” while in Lansing, but then we can drive ten minutes outside of town and enjoy the countryside. There’s a little bit of everything here!
  • What you may not know about me: I knew I wanted to be a meteorologist since the 7th I used to have a huge fear of speaking in front of people. Macaroni & Cheese and pizza are my favorite foods. I make homemade chocolate milkshakes more often than I’d like to admit.
