Meet the KDKA First Alert weather team
Meteorologist Christine Emery joined the KDKA team in 2012 and happily returned home with her family to southwest Pennsylvania. Christine was born and raised in “little” Washington, graduated from Washington High School and received a bachelor’s degree in journalism from the University of West Virginia.
She began her weather career on WTOV-TV in Steubenville, Ohio, before moving on to weather forecasting, as well as reporting and news coverage at stations in Florida, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Maryland, North Carolina and Ohio. . Christine loves to tell the news and tell stories to people, but her true love is weather forecasting.
She graduated with a degree in meteorological research from the University of Mississippi. She is an award-winning reporter and was nominated for an Emmy Award for her work covering the deadly tornado outbreak in Alabama in 2011.
Over the years, she has reported on everything from politics to sports and medicine, and has covered all kinds of weather you can imagine, including floods, blizzards, ice storms, mudslides, tornadoes and hurricanes. One of her most memorable stories she calls Hurricane Andrew in Florida.
She is a member of the American Meteorological Society and the National Weather Association and has seals of approval from both. Christine is also an employee of the Berlin RIAS Commission through RTDNA and reported from Germany on the 60th anniversary of Berlin Air Transport, the problems associated with the reunification of Germany and the formation of the European Union.
If she’s not forecasting the weather, Christine is outdoors enjoying it on the ski slopes, scuba diving and golf. Christine’s favorite hobbies include traveling and visiting Pittsburgh and WVU sports teams.
