Emmy-Award winner Eryn Rogers joined the WSPA-TV news team in December 2014 as the Daybreak reporter.
Eryn comes to WSPA from WANE-TV in Fort Wayne, Indiana where she covered a little bit of everything including politics, crime, exotic animals, sports, and lots of (cold) weather. She was also a fill-in anchor.
She won a Midwest Emmy for a documentary she filmed and produced as a part of her graduate capstone on one man trying to save youth in Chicago from gang life.
Eryn graduated from the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University where she finished the Accelerated Master’s Program at Northwestern securing that and her Bachelor’s degree in simultaneous fashion.
Eryn has also reported at KSNT-TV in Topeka, Kansas and held an internship with MSNBC’s “Hardball with Chris Matthews”. A native of Atlanta, Eryn also interned at local news powerhouse, WSB-TV.
When she’s not working, Eryn enjoys exercising, exploring new shops and restaurants, and volunteering with two of her organizations, the National Association of Black Journalists and Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.
She’s excited to call the Upstate her home, and she wants to hear from you whether it’s to share a story idea or just to say hello.
