Emily Jaceks

Good Morning Northwest Anchor/Producer

"I am thrilled to be hosting this amazing show! I absolutely love being close to my hometown and feel very privileged to tell the stories that affect the people who are so close to my heart."

Emily Jaceks joined the KAPP/KVEW team as Anchor, Host and Producer of Good Morning Northwest in September of 2012.

Emily grew up in a military family. Born in New York, New York, her parents later retired and made one final move to the Moses Lake area. There, Emily was a cheerleader for her high school and a Running Start participant.

Emily later transferred to Washington State University. After graduating from the Edward R. Murrow College of Communication, she started her career in radio in her hometown of Moses Lake. At KBSN/KDRM, she reported in the afternoons and was a DJ on the weekends.

From there, Emily moved to the Tri Cities to gain more experience in the television industry. She worked as a newsroom assistant at KEPR TV, before landing her first full-time radio gig in Walla Walla. Emily spent 6 years at the Capps Broadcast Group and served as News Director for three stations in Southeast Washington. In addition to reporting and anchoring, Emily hosted a daily talk show that featured a wide range of guests on a variety of community based topics.

Emily is excited to stay close to home and meet viewers in the region. She is an animal lover,  outdoor enthusiast, and avid shopper. She enjoys sunshine and spending time with her family in the Columbia Basin and in Southern California.
