A Chicago native, meteorologist Emily Sutton joined the 4Warn Storm Team in December 2009. She started on air a few weeks before Oklahoma City's largest snowstorm, the "Christmas Eve Blizzard," and has been experiencing Oklahoma extremes ever since. In 2013 she promoted to weekday mornings.
Since distinguishing herself while storm chasing live during the historic May 2013 tornado outbreaks, Sutton continues to cover significant storms firsthand for KFOR-TV. Her storm chasing gained national recognition with video showcased on CNN, MSNBC and The Weather Channel. Sam Anderson profiled her storm chasing experiences for "The New York Times Magazine" and blog "The 6th Floor" in August 2013. She recently was featured in the May issue of "Popular Mechanics."
Besides weather, Sutton loves to sing and had the honor of singing in front of thousands at Tennessee's famous NASCAR track, Oklahoma City Baron's hockey and Thunder basketball.
In her spare time, Sutton loves to swim, cycle, travel, cook and spend time with her Springer Spaniel rescue pup, Okie. Sutton races in triathlons for charity. In November of 2014, Emily Sutton and Scott Hines crossed the finish line of their first Ironman (2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike and 26.2 mile run). Their team raised more than $200,000 for leukemia and lymphoma research through a local non-profit, "The Go Mitch Go Foundation."
