Digital Content Producer
Elisa Schwartzmiller joined WAVE News in May 2022.
Before joining WAVE, Elisa worked at sister station WSAZ in Huntington, West Virginia. There she was a producer, digital content producer as well as the assignment manager for two years. She covered stories ranging from crime to community events for parts of Eastern Kentucky, Southern West Virginia, and Southeastern Ohio.
Elisa is originally from Clarksburg, West Virginia. She attended West Virginia University and was the executive producer for WVU News in the spring of 2020. During her time at WVU, she interned with West Virginia Public Broadcasting and spent her summers at a local station in her hometown.
When she isn't at work, Elisa is usually spending time exploring the city, at Trader Joe's or catching up with her family via FaceTime. Since she grew up around mountains, if there is any reason to be outside, she's going to be there.
Elisa grew up around horses and is excited to be living in the Derby City.
