From a young age, Emily Goodman knew she wanted to be a meteorologist.
She studied and earned her Bachelors degree from the University of the Cumberlands in KY then headed to Mississippi State University where she earned her Masters degree in Broadcast Meteorology.
She spent some of her free time storm chasing in Dixie Alley while in Mississippi and was a member of a 3-year winning forecasting competition team.
Both things prepared her for what she does on a daily basis now.
Emily has worked on TV for WNKY in Bowling Green, KY; WYMT in Hazard, KY; WVLT in Knoxville, TN and joined the StormTracker 7 weather team at WTRF in May 2016.
The weather has been a passion for her life for several years, but it’s not her life. She is happily married to Ed Goodman who you may see preaching here in the Valley at local Baptist churches from time to time.
Emily and Ed spend their afternoons and weekends together and you can typically find them eating at local restaurants.
Emily has been waking up dark and early to bring you the daily forecast. You can watch her from 5 to 7 a.m. on 7News This Morning and Noon Monday through Friday.
Emily is originally from Mt. Vernon, KY but is happy to call the Ohio Valley her home for the time being.
