Emily Kaye joined WRIC-TV in June 2021. She came to Richmond from KWKT-TV in Waco, Texas, where she was the Weekend Meteorologist/Multimedia Journalist. She graduated from Mississippi State University with a Bachelor of Science in Meteorology and a minor in Communications.
Emily grew up in Stafford, Virginia, and became passionate about the weather after Hurricane Isabel swept through the state. After graduating college, she worked at WJHG in Panama City Beach, Florida. During her time in Florida, Emily covered several tropical systems including Hurricane Michael, which made landfall in the panhandle as a powerful category five storm. In Texas, she covered tornadoes, severe storms and extreme winter weather.
Emily is extremely excited to be back in Virginia and closer to family. When she is not at the television station, she can be found enjoying the outdoors with her dog, reading a good book or exploring the area.
