Emily Miller Leaving WTTG

By Kevin Eck 

Emily Miller is leaving Washington, D.C. Fox-owned station WTTG after her two year contract expires today.

Miller is the chief investigative reporter for the station. She started in April 2014.

“Unfortunately, Emily has decided to move on at the end of her 2-year contract, Emily brought original reporting, got real results from her investigations and demonstrated exemplary coverage of the Baltimore Riots,” said WTTG vp & gm Patrick Paolini. “We wish her the best in the future.”

“It was truly a rewarding experience to work at Fox 5 because local TV news is unique and because it let me directly help people who felt they have no one to fight for them,” said Emily Miller. “It showed me clearly why the fourth estate is so important in our country.”

She’s made news because of her stand on gun control and book “Emily Gets Her Gun.”

According to her station bio, “She was deputy press secretary at the U.S. Department of State during President George W. Bush’s administration. She worked directly with Secretaries of State Colin L. Powell and Condoleezza Rice to develop communication strategies to achieve U.S. foreign policy objectives.”
