The Malverne/West Hempstead Herald is delighted to welcome Emily Webb, 21, to its Editorial team.
While she may have just joined the established ranks of the Herald staff, Emily has certainly earned her stripes as a seasoned reporter despite the freshly laminated press badge. After working as an intern for the Herald in the last three years, Emily has garnered plenty of experience in chasing ledes and churning out stories for the towns of Oceanside, Island Park and Long Beach. In now providing these services to the residents of Malverne and West Hempstead, Emily looks forward to learning about their thriving communities.
As a recent graduate of SUNY Geneseo, Emily is eager to utilize her writing expertise as an English major, along with her experience in several media organizations on campus, while she ventures into the belly of the newsroom. She has worked as a contributing reporter for the Lamron – Geneseo’s student newspaper – a regular disc jockey on the campus radio station, 89.3 FM WGSU Geneseo: The Revolution. In addition, Emily recently served as the managing editor of Gandy Dancer, the first SUNY-wide online literary magazine.
Though she has lived in Oceanside for the past 12 years, Emily has grown quite fond of Malverne and West Hempstead and has even shared some history in those neighborhoods. Before she moved to Oceanside in 1999, Emily used to live on Morris Avenue in Malverne and attended Maurice Downing Elementary School. She often prefers to spend quality time with her friends at Witches’ Brew on Hempstead Turnpike to chat over some sumptuous brownies and a brisk iced coffee.
With such precious memories invested in these towns, Emily believes that her forthcoming work with the Herald will be a genuine pleasure and hopes to foster even greater memories in serving the residents of Malverne and West Hempstead.
