Emily Finnegan

Anchor/Reporter

You'll find Emily out covering stories all across Southern Illinois and co-anchoring News 3 at Ten with Edan Schultz.

Emily joined the WSIL 3 team in October 2010. Born and raised in St. Louis, Mo, she is excited to be closer to home in Southern Illinois!

Emily’s passion for journalism began in grade school and only continued to grow as she worked for her high school and college television stations. She graduated Suma Cum Lade from Truman State University with a bachelor’s degree in communication: journalism and a minor in political science.

Before moving to Southern Illinois, Emily began her broadcast career in Northeast Missouri where she spent more than three years at KTVO-TV in Kirksville, Mo. She worked as a one-man-band reporter and producer and eventually became the weekend anchor and producer.


When she’s not at work, Emily loves to spend time with her wonderful family and friends, read, exercise and satisfy her sweet tooth by baking.
