AUSTIN, Texas — Emily Giangreco is a sports anchor and multi-skilled journalist for KVUE in Austin, Texas.

Emily is a Washington, D.C., native who attended West Virginia University, where she majored in broadcast journalism with a minor in communications.

After graduating college, Emily accepted her first job at the CBS affiliate in Lafayette, Louisiana.

Although she may not be a born Cajun, she grew to love the South and all that it had to offer – even the humidity.

Growing up, Emily would attend Baltimore Orioles games with her "PawPaw." That is where her love for sports began.

Her favorite sport to cover is baseball, and her favorite player is Cal Ripken Jr.

But, Texans, don’t worry! She still loves to be on the gridiron too.

Her favorite part about working in sports journalism is telling the stories of athletes – looking at them as more than a number, more than a jersey, but a person who endured so much for the game that they love.

Emily is excited about making Austin her new home and even more excited to experience Texas football. She’s always heard stories but is looking forward to witnessing the real thing.

When Emily isn’t at a game, you can still find her outdoors – probably with her big, fluffy dog named LuLu.
