Autumn Ziemba joined the Fox 8 team in the summer of 2009 as a general assignment reporter. You can now watch her anchoring the weekend edition of Fox 8 News in the Morning with Todd Meany.
Autumn is a proud Hinckley native and graduate of Highland High School, which makes her both a buzzard and a hornet!
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 has won several Emmys for her work, as well as recognition from the Ohio Associated Press and the Cleveland Press Club–for which she is genuinely grateful. But nothing beats the “Great job, Mommy!” greeting she gets from her three-year-old daughter the moment she arrives home.
Autumn has always had a soft spot for animals. She spent six years on the executive board for the Citizens Committee for the Lakewood Animal Shelter—an organization that remains very close to her heart. She also volunteers for the Lakewood Early Childhood PTA. 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, her husband Mark, their daughter Maren and baby boy Simon, share their home with three shelter pets: a lab named Zoe and two hyperactive cats, Goose and Fig.
