Former WAGA reporter Emilie Ikeda is joining NBC News as a correspondent.
The move was announced by David Verdi, executive vp of global newsgathering.
Ikeda announced her departure from Fox-owned WAGA in Atlanta in March. She had worked there since 2019. Before that, she was a part of Fox’s Multimedia Reporters Training Program, where she wrote, shot, conducted interviews and edited packages for Fox News Channel and Fox affiliates nationwide.
She’ll report across NBC News and MSNBC platforms starting Monday.
