Emily De Vito
My name is Emily De Vito and I am currently a reporter, weekend anchor and producer at WBNG-TV in Binghamton, New York. I started working in Binghamton in August 2015, and since starting I have been given endless opportunities to grow and learn as a reporter. I have been able to cover breaking news, political rallies and human interest pieces. Also, working weekends has given me the opportunity to manage several reporters as well as juggle wearing several different hats. On weekends, not only am I producing and anchoring my own shows, but I am also managing a team of reporters, posting to our website, and social media accounts. I feel it has made me a well rounded reporter to have in the newsroom because I am aware of how vital each role is to making a station one to watch.
In August 2015 I received an M.S. in Broadcast and Digital Journalism at Syracuse University's S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications. I received my undergraduate degree from Elon University in May 2014 and graduated with a B.A. in Media Arts & Entertainment: Broadcast and New media and minors in Dance Performance and Professional Writing.
I enjoy reporting breaking news, politics and consumer pieces. My passion for being a multimedia journalist allows me to connect with the community through Facebook, twitter, periscope, and other social media sites. It is important to me that my stories reach a community on multiple levels and not just through television. Nothing makes me happier than when a community member comes up to me, telling me how my story has made a difference for them.
While a master's student, I received the opportunity to go to Washington DC and report for WTAJ-TV, a news station in Altoona, Pennsylvania. My packages were aired in that market, while I was still a student. I have also had the opportunity to intern with inspiring news stations such as, CBS6 in Albany, New York, ABC11 News Station in Durham, North Carolina, and WSYR Channel9 in Syracuse, New York. At these news stations I was able to go out into the field with reporters daily, generate content ideas for shows, and write scripts for newscasts.
I have provided examples of the work I have done here on my website. Please do not hesitate to contact me for more samples of my work and be sure to follow me on twitter (@emilydevito) and check out my Facebook (Emily De Vito WBNG).
