Autumn Ziemba is an Emmy and Associated Press award-winning journalist who joined the Fox 8 team in the summer of 2009 as a general assignment reporter. You can now watch her anchor the weekend edition of Fox 8 News in the Morning with Roosevelt Leftwich.
Autumn is a Hinckley native and graduate of Highland High School.
After graduating with honors from Ohio University’s E.W. Scripps School of Journalism, Autumn entered the world of broadcasting as an anchor for WTAP in Parkersburg, WV. She later went on to anchor and report for WUPW in Toledo, WFMJ in Youngstown and WEWS in Cleveland, before joining the Fox 8 family.
Autumn and her husband, Mark, are the proud parents of two children: 7-year-old Maren and 3-year-old Simon, who happens to be a special needs warrior and cancer survivor.
It was their son’s diagnoses that spawned their advocacy for children with special needs and those fighting pediatric cancers. Autumn serves on the committee for Autism Speaks, and is active with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and St. Baldrick’s Foundation. She is a volunteer with A Special Wish, which supports local families battling pediatric cancer. She and her family are also proud fundraising ambassadors for Cleveland Clinic Children’s Hospital and have helped to raise money for the hospital’s new sensory room.
When she’s not losing her mind as a stay-at-home mom during the week, Autumn loves to get outdoors and shoot still photography, enjoy the Cleveland lakefront and take in a local comedy show.
Autumn has always had a soft spot for animals. She and her family share their home with two shelter cats, Goose and Fig. They hope to add a service dog to the mix soon!
