KSN News Anchor / Reporter
Emily lives by the motto “work hard, stay humble.” It’s something she attributes to her Kansas roots. Yes, those dimples might look familiar to some. Emily grew up in Hays, Kansas and is proud to call the Sunflower State home.
Emily is the evening anchor at KSN. Her aggressive reporting skills and ability to connect with viewers have earned her numerous honors including a National Edward R. Murrow Award and five first-place Kansas Association of Broadcaster awards. In 2019, KSN launched Positive Connections with Emily Younger, a franchise showcasing Emily’s strong storytelling skills.
Before joining KSN in April 2016, Emily spent three years at the CBS affiliate in Albuquerque, New Mexico. While there, she covered a school shooting, Pope Francis’ visit to the Mexico-United States border and the Department of Justice’s investigation into the Albuquerque Police Department.
She graduated from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln with a Bachelor’s in Journalism, Advertising and Public Relations. She also has a minor in Spanish. While she loves the Huskers, she is an avid KU basketball and Chiefs football fan.
When she’s not telling your stories on air, you can find Emily volunteering. She is part of the Women United Read to Succeed initiative which helps local elementary students transition from “learning to read” to “reading to learn.” She has also served as a Girls on the Run coach.
During her downtime, Emily loves to work out! She is a certified personal trainer who helps women gain confidence through nutrition and exercise. If she’s not at the gym or searching for a new running path, the busy journalist is likely doing a puzzle or spending precious time with her family and friends.
