Emily Siner is a journalist who lives in Nashville and hails from the south suburbs of Chicago. She writes, records, produces and edits stories that document the human experience and explain how things work.

(By the way, “Siner” rhymes with “finer.”)

Her passion for journalism has propelled her into nearly every role in a newsroom. She is the assistant news director of Nashville Public Radio, where her reporting has won several regional and national awards. She produces and hosts a podcast called Movers & Thinkers, copy-edited some of the best newspaper writers in the country at the Los Angeles Times, produced stories and graphics for NPR.org, and launched a website for buzz Magazine. She has a portfolio of photos, videos and graphs.

She is also passionate about strengthening the future of journalism. She speaks often to college and high school students and presented at TEDxNashville 2015 about “Bringing Radio Into The Digital Age.”

Emily is a proud graduate of the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign. In her free time in Nashville, she is learning how to fiddle.
