CLEVELAND — It’s a homecoming for Julie Flynn. The Cleveland native worked at 3News for four years, beginning in 2013. During her time, she served as an executive producer overseeing newscasts at both 7 p.m. and 11 p.m.

In 2018, Julie ventured north to WKYC’s sister station, WZZM-TV, in Grand Rapids, Michigan, to take on the role of News Director.

She loved her time in beautiful West Michigan, but Julie made the decision to head home to be close to family. She was thrilled to walk back into the WKYC newsroom in March 2022. In her new role as Director of Innovation, Julie manages engaging content on all platforms.

Prior to working for parent company Tegna, Julie spent more than 11 years at WEWS, the ABC affiliate in Cleveland. She wore many hats throughout the years including assignment editor and “Good Morning Cleveland” producer.

She has received numerous honors including multiple Emmy awards and a regional Murrow for best newscast.

Julie earned her Bachelor of Arts degree from Fordham University in Bronx, New York.

When she is not in the newsroom, Julie enjoys exploring the Metroparks with her husband, Brian, and their French bulldog, Roxy, along with indulging in Cleveland’s great restaurant scene.
