Emily, who was a 2018 intern with The Post, has covered University of Maryland football and men’s basketball and been part of our Olympics reporting teams at the Summer Games in Tokyo and Winter Games in Beijing, with a focus on gymnastics and figure skating. Emily was a major contributor to last year’s series on the NFL’s failure to provide adequate head coaching opportunities to Black coaches, heading up the project’s data analysis. She has also covered national college football and college basketball, including this year’s men’s Final Four.
In her new role, Emily will work closely with the newsroom’s Data Team and apply her reporting and data management skills to bring a new dimension to the Sports department’s investigations and accountability journalism. We also expect Emily will continue to cover gymnastics and figure skating and play a role in our coverage of college football and basketball.
Emily graduated from the University of Georgia in May 2018 with a degree in management information systems and a minor in anthropology, and participated in the school’s Grady Sports Media certificate program. We feel her skillset, experience and demonstrated ability to take on big projects make her uniquely suited for this new position, which begins immediately.
