WABE People

Emily Jones

Climate Reporter

I cover climate change, the environment, and environmental justice as part of a partnership between WABE and Grist, a nonprofit, independent media organization dedicated to telling stories of climate solutions and a just future. Climate change is an overwhelming global threat that can be difficult to wrap your head around, so I try to break down for Georgians how it’s affecting their lives and what they can do about it.

Before joining WABE in 2021, I hosted “Morning Edition” and covered the Georgia coast for Georgia Public Broadcasting. I got started as a reporter at my college radio station in Providence, where I also worked as a DJ and interned for the local public radio station. I have a masters in broadcast journalism from Columbia and have been honored by the Atlanta Press Club and the Georgia Association of Broadcasters.
