Emma Henderson

Emma Henderson began as a reporter for WTOL 11 News in October 2018. Emma grew up in Westerville, Ohio, a suburb of Columbus. Her passion for journalism began at a young age when she realized almost every topic was fascinating. She spent her time in school wanting to learn more about alternative energy, politics and different cultures around the United States and the World.

Emma graduated from the Missouri School of Journalism in 2016 where she reported and anchored at KOMU 8 News. There, she got involved in the Target 8 investigative team and was part of a Murrow Award-winning series. She spent two years at WSAW in Wausau, Wisconsin where she covered local politics, dug into the issue of opioids and foster care and a case of stolen valor. The team there was so collaborative, so I also had the chance to produce and anchor.

Emma is excited to see what stories and adventures await now that she's in Toledo. You can follow her on Twitter @EmmaHendersonTV and on Facebook at Emma Henderson WTOL.
