Emily Putnam is a Rochester-area native who joined the News10NBC team in October 2017. She’s an executive assistant and community relations coordinator here, and she co-produces and co-hosts our weekend public affairs program Rochester In Focus alongside Brennan Somers.
Emily is passionate about Rochester’s vibrant art scene, and she’s particularly active in the local theatre community. When she’s not at News10NBC you’ll likely find her on one of Rochester’s stages singing, dancing, and acting in everything from pop musicals to Shakespearean tragedies.
After graduating from Webster Thomas High School, Emily earned her bachelor’s degree in drama from Ithaca College. Then, in an effort to merge her love for storytelling with her interest in digital media, she applied for a job managing public relations and social media at a local PR firm specializing in arts organizations and non-profit clients. That job piqued her creative interest in journalism, which lead her to News10NBC.
Emily is pursuing a master’s degree in communications with a specialization in journalism innovation through the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University.
She lives in the South Wedge neighborhood with her boyfriend, and enjoys exploring Rochester and practicing yoga in her spare time.
