Emily Luxen is thrilled to a part of the NewsChannel 5 team, and joined the staff in February of 2012. She will be reporting on all the latest breaking news for NewsChannel 5 at 10 p.m.
As a proud native Texan, Emily is always happy to talk about her hometown of Dallas, her love of great Mexican food, and her undying support of the Dallas Cowboys and Mavericks. However, she is excited to extend her stay in the South, and live and work in Nashville!
