Emily Valerio began working with News 18 in October of 2011 as a part-time reporter while she finished her studies at Bethany Lutheran College in Mankato, MN. She began full-time after her graduation in December.
During her college career Emily spent most of her time working with Charter Communications and the school's student-run broadcast of Minnesota State - Mankato Hockey as a sideline reporter. She also interned with Mankato's newspaper, The Free Press, to produce video features for their website.
Emily is a Colorado native and someday would like to return to the mountains where she grew up camping and hiking. But she has also found a new love for the fishing and lakes the Upper Midwest has to offer.
The thing Emily is most passionate about is storytelling. She grew up listening to her grandparents tell the most captivating stories about growing up during the Depression and traveling all over the world. It is here where she began to dream of a job where she had the opportunity to share the stories, she believes, each person has to tell.
