Emily Cassulo is happy to join the WDEF news team.
She comes from News 12’s sister station in Columbus, Mississippi, where she worked as an anchor, producer and reporter.
Emily is no stranger to the Volunteer State. Before moving to Mississippi, she worked at WBBJ-TV, covering crime and severe weather throughout West Tennessee.
She’s excited to now live in Chattanooga, and looks forward to exploring what the Scenic City has to offer.
Emily is a Florida native, graduating from the University of Central Florida with a degree in broadcast journalism and minor in political science.
While in college, Emily worked part-time as a reporter/web producer at News/Talk 96.5 WDBO. She broke her first news story there, which made national headlines, and covered the 2010 Central Florida congressional elections and the high-profile Casey Anthony trial.
When she’s not busy reporting, Emily enjoys shopping, reading, playing the piano, and spending time with family and friends.
