Jennifer Emert is heading to Atlanta

Posted: Updated:
COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

WIS-TV's Jennifer Emert is leaving the Midlands for a new opportunity in Atlanta.

Emert started at WIS two years ago after spending seven years as a general assignments and investigative reporter at WIS' sister station, WALB, in Albany, Ga. She was hired at WIS as an investigative reporter and has been known for her job in digging deeper into the finances and curriculum changes at Sumter School District, investigating costs and issues associated with the Richland County election debacle in 2012, and discovered the underhanded side-effects of poor management at Columbia's Dorn VA hospital, among many other investigative pieces.

Emert's award-winning journalism created a reputation of professionalism in her work and dedication to getting answers, even if it meant asking questions no one wanted to answer.

Her lengthy journalism career also includes being assignment manager at WFMJ-TV in Youngstown, Ohio, and news director and airborne traffic reporter for Metro Networks in Pittsburgh, Pa., which is her native state.

Emert's last day at WIS is June 13. She is moving on as investigative reporter for WGCL-TV in Atlanta.
