Moderated by San Francisco Reporter, Emily Turner
Emily Turner is a recent addition to the KPIX 5 news team but isn’t new to the Bay Area. She was a reporter with KRON 4 before moving over to the CBS Family. Emily started her news career in Mobile, Alabama after graduating from the University of Florida. Saturdays during football season she’s always sporting some form of orange and blue, rooting for the Gators.
She’s reported in Jacksonville, and Orlando and anchored in Tucson. Emily also sideline reports for CrossFit on ESPN and was a host and reporter for GRID on NBC Sports Network. She’s covered seven hurricanes, the Gulf oil spill and major court cases like Trayvon Martin and Casey Anthony.
You’ll only catch Emily inside if she’s reading a book, sleeping or doing the unfortunate task of laundry. Otherwise she’s hiking, camping, paddle boarding or some other outdoor adventure. She does improv comedy and her pug Herbie thinks she’s hilarious. She’s a sucker for a good story and a good laugh.
Guy Benson will be signing copies of his book, so get one at the event.
