Emily Sutton Joins KFOR Morning News

KFOR meteorologist Emily Sutton will be moving to mornings for the Oklahoma City NBC affiliate.

“This will be a lifestyle change because I will be getting up a lot earlier, but I can do this,” Sutton said in a statement. “Being a marathon runner will no doubt help.”

Sutton, who joined KFOR three years ago, will join Ali Meyer, Kent Ogle and Britnee Bryles on KFOR from 4:00 to 7:00 a.m. and Lance West and Britnee Bryles from 7:00 to 9:00 a.m. on KFOR’s independent sister station KAUT.

She replaces David Payne who left for rival station KWTV, Oklahoma City’s CBS affiliate, in December. Read more
