Merris Badcock is the Northern Virginia reporter for WHAG, and has been with the station since November 2013.
Merris got her broadcast journalism start hosting a weekly community update show while she was a student at Florida State University. After that, she used her time in Tallahassee to explore any and all opportunities that were available. She worked in the WCTV (CBS) newsroom and simultaneously reported for Florida State Headlines, a campus program that highlighted outstanding academic work in the FSU community. She also reported for Seminole Sports Magazine and SunSports (now Fox Sports Florida), and discovered her love for sports and sideline reporting.
After spending two years exploring New York City, Merris is excited to return to the broadcasting world. She is a member of Phi Mu Sorority and the Junior League, loves cooking, the outdoors and CrossFit, and is excited to explore Northern Virginia through her stories.
