Washington, D.C. – Federal News Radio 1500 AM today announced the promotion of Emily Kopp as the station’s newest morning drive anchor. Kopp, formerly a federal workforce reporter, will join host Tom Temin on the Monday through Friday program, The Federal Drive, which brings listeners the latest news affecting the federal community.
Kopp joined Federal News Radio in 2011 after living in the Netherlands where she reported on a freelance basis for various radio network and print outlets. Prior to her promotion, Kopp served Federal News Radio as a federal workforce reporter. Since July 2011, Kopp has produced several compelling series that focused on key human aspects of working for the federal government.
“Emily had been filling-in as co-anchor while we’ve been conducting our talent search for the next morning anchor,” said Lisa Wolfe, program director at Federal News Radio. “Her talents were obvious and when we got together to discuss the possibility of making it permanent, it just made sense. I look forward to Emily bringing her well-crafted interview style to mornings. I think she will uncover a lot of news.”
Kopp is a multimedia journalist with more than ten years’ experience in radio, online, print, and television reporting. In addition to graduating from Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism in New York and Wesleyan University in Middletown, CT, Kopp was selected by the American Political Science Association for a Congressional fellowship in 2007 and was named the 2006 Radio Journalist of the Year by the Atlanta Press Club.
