Evelyn Wilkerson joined the Eyewitness News team in December of 2013. She is a native of Chicago, IL, but was raised in St. Louis, MO. Evelyn is a graduate of Anderson University and Finch University of Health Sciences, now known as Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science. Her undergraduate and graduate degrees are in Clinical Psychology.
Changes in the healthcare industry prompted her to try her hand as a broadcast journalist. Consequently, Evelyn has worked as a general assignment reporter for KIMT in Mason City, IA, WOTV in Battle Creek, MI, and KPLR in St. Louis, MO. Coming to Rockford is especially exciting for her because this is her first opportunity to become an anchor. In her spare time, she enjoys free lance writing, traveling, and spending time with her family and friends.
