WNWO Adds Laura Emerson as Anchor

emerson wnwoLaura Emerson is returning to Toledo as an anchor for Sinclair owned NBC affiliate WNWO.

The Blade reports Emerson will co-anchor the 6:00 and 11:00 p.m. shows with Jim Blue.

Emerson was an anchor at WUPW-TV, Channel 36, for 16 years, before she left in January, 2012, to co-anchor the 5, 6, and 10 p.m. newscasts at NBC affiliate WPSD-TV in Paducah, Ky, a market that stretches into western Missouri, southern Illinois, and the northern edge of Tennessee, and is slightly smaller than the Toledo-area market.

“She brings a familiar face to our viewers,” said Nicole Hahn, who was recently promoted to WNWO’s news director position. “She has a vast knowledge of the area, and she will bring leadership and experience to our team.
