I taught “Adventure Travel Writing and Photography” in 2015. The class included an immersion trip to Moab, UT. I’m hiking with a student in Canyonlands National Park in this photo taken by Greg Corio.

Welcome to my digital portfolio website that highlights my work as a journalism educator and practitioner.

My name is Emily Hughes Corio, and I am a faculty member at West Virginia University’s Reed College of Media where I teach reporting and audio and video story production courses.  I enjoy encouraging students to pursue a career in journalism and helping them develop their skills and talents in the media industry.

Before I started teaching full time in 2011, I worked in public media for ten years, as a reporter, a producer, and eventually as the assistant news director at the statewide NPR and PBS affiliate network in West Virginia.

Despite the different position titles, I have never stopped reporting since my first job at Allegheny Mountain Radio in Frost, WV.  The storytelling process is a labor of love.  From researching an idea to interviewing sources; writing the script; and, finally, editing and producing, every aspect of storytelling intrigues, excites, and motivates me to continue to practice and teach journalism.
