Emily Ngo is well accustomed to the high-octane pace of covering campaigns and elections.
She sees the power of the vote as a means of holding elected officials accountable and signaling when the time has come for a changing of the guard.
She loves New York for its bottomless well of stories, its rich array of personalities and its pizza, high-brow or low.
Before joining NY1, Emily was a national political reporter with Newsday, where she traveled with Donald Trump on the 2016 campaign trail and followed him to the White House to cover his presidency. She also had regular appearances on MSNBC and Cheddar as a political analyst.
Emily won multiple awards for her work with Newsday. She covered the memorable 2013 New York City elections and Bill de Blasio’s first years as mayor for the paper. Emily previously was a reporter at amNewYork, the New York Post, the Daily Herald in Illinois and the Chicago Sun-Times.
Emily is a graduate of the Newhouse School at Syracuse University.
She grew up in Chicago. She’s a White Sox fan, not a Cubs one. Here in New York, the Mets are her adopted team.
Emily is a fan of dance, though she mostly does it around the kitchen with her kids.
