Emily Turner

Emily Turner joins the KOLD News team from WJXT in Jacksonville, FL. She hails from the south and has spent most of her news career there. She worked at stations in Mobile, AL and Orlando, FL before finally circling back home to Jacksonville.  

During those years, she covered major news makers like Casey Anthony and Trayvon Martin. She's also covered six hurricanes, multiple shark attacks and one Gulf oil spill. Now that she's in the desert,  Emily has likely seen the last of those … trading them in for dust storms and monsoons instead.

Emily is an avid CrossFitter. She is a certified coach and, once upon a time, she used to compete. Outside the gym, if an activity involves the outdoors she's on board. You'll likely see her hiking Mt. Lemmon, jogging the loop or hitting up the local farmer's markets. Her pug, Herbie, provides great moral support, but prefers to lounge around the house and keep cool.

When the weather works against her, Emily loves to curl up with a good book. Last year she read 117. (Yes, she keeps a log. No, she's not crazy.)  She just likes a good story … and loves a good laugh. If you've got either, share it. Email her at eturner@tucsonnewsnow.com and "like" her on Facebook.
