Emily Owen is the WZDX News Weekend Meteorologist.
Before joining the WZDX team in May 2019, she worked at WVUA in Tuscaloosa, AL.
Emily is from Oneonta, Alabama. She is a recent graduate from Mississippi State University with a degree in Professional Meteorology with an emphasis in Broadcasting.
Being from the south and experiencing multiple tornadoes pass through her hometown, it was hard for Emily to not develop an interest in weather, specifically severe weather. Getting to personally experience the tornado outbreak of April 27, 2011 is when Emily realized her love for weather needed to become her career.
When Emily is not studying the weather, she enjoys playing with her puppy Fitz, giving back to the community, attending community events and twirling baton.
Emily is very excited to be able to stay in her home state of Alabama to forecast for her family/friends and to help keep the Valley safe.
