Emily Chavez | KGAN
Emily Chavez joined the CBS2/FOX28 news team in August 2019. She is from Rochester, New York and is excited to begin her reporting career in the Midwest.
Emily graduated from the Roy H. Park School of Communications at Ithaca College as a journalism major and a Spanish minor. At IC she was a reporter, producer and social media coordinator for several shows on Ithaca College Television, ICTV.
She gained professional experience through internships at WHEC News10NBC in Rochester and Spectrum News Buffalo. In January, Emily freelanced with NBC News covering the 2019 Women’s March as a digital correspondent.
Her passion for storytelling began at a very early age when her mom would catch her walking around asking people questions and writing them down in her notebook. As a proud first-generation Mexican American student, her goal has always been to amplify the voices of those who aren’t able to do those themselves.
Although she’s going to miss her mom’s homemade Mexican food, Emily can’t wait to get to know the Cedar Rapids area. She loves talking so if you see her, don’t be afraid to say hi! She can also be reached via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
