Eva Zymaris joined the WTNH News 8 team in August 2020, continuing more than four years of covering the stories most important to the people of Connecticut.
Eva has been there for the state’s biggest stories, from tornadoes and other calamitous weather events, to high-profile murder investigations and the deadly B-17 plane crash at Bradley Airport. One of Eva’s favorite assignments was highlighting a random act of kindness by one man in West Hartford, who built a small bench for a young neighbor, after noticing he would sit on the sidewalk to admire the flag outside his home. The story, “Finn’s Bench”, caught the eye of CBS News’ Steve Hartman. He came to Connecticut the following week to share the story with a national audience.
Prior to coming to Connecticut, Eva was a reporter and fill-in anchor at Western Mass News in Springfield, Massachusetts. Her broadcast journalism career began immediately after she earned her degree in Broadcast and Digital Journalism from the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications and Syracuse University. Despite being surrounded by UConn faithful, Eva still ‘Bleeds Orange’.
Internships at the TODAY Show and Sirius XM Radio in New York City prepared her for her professional career and kept her closer to home in New Jersey, where she visits her family regularly in her spare time. Here in Connecticut, don’t be surprised if you see her out running, eating a gyro at a Greek festival or perusing the clothing racks at T.J. Maxx.
