Emma Rechenberg

Emma anchors the weekday morning and noon newscasts on KBJR 6. She originally joined the news team in June 2017 as the weekend anchor, but now she embraces her early morning alarm with coffee and a smile.

Although Emma is new to the North Star State, she is no stranger to the Northwoods. Growing up, Emma spent many summers at her family’s cabin on Clam Lake, located near Hayward, Wisconsin.

Originally from St. Louis, Missouri, Emma enjoys covering the news in St. Louis County. She is a proud Mizzou alum and graduated with honors from the Missouri School of Journalism, one of the highest ranked journalism schools in the nation. She comes to KBJR 6 with experience reporting and anchoring at the NBC affiliate station in Columbia, Missouri, KOMU 8 News.

In her free time, Emma enjoys traveling, trying new restaurants and photography. You might find her walking along the Lakeshore or exploring different trails. If you see her, don’t hesitate to say hello!

Emma is passionate about telling accurate and impactful news stories. She uses social media as a tool to share these stories and can be reached on FacebookTwitter and Instagram. If you have a news tip you think Emma should look into, please email her at erechenberg@kbjr6.com, or call 218-481-6201.
