Elise Kim joined the WETM 18 News team as the weekend reporter in January of 2020.
Born in Maryland and raised in Northern Virginia, Elise is very familiar with the D.M.V. area. She graduated from Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond with a B.A. in Broadcast Journalism and a minor in English.
Before coming to WETM, Elise interned at the Richmond Magazine, writing for the entertainment and food sections. During her time at VCU, Elise took part in the student-ran newscast called InSight as a reporter. The newscast aired Friday nights on the local Richmond PBS station.
Other than her life at the station, Elise enjoys reading webtoons, watching “The Good Place” on Netflix, and hanging out with friends and family. Elise loves hot weather and one day wishes she can live somewhere where it’s summer 24/7.
