Emily Fanous

Emily Thornton

As a former TV news reporter and web producer, I received hundreds of pitches every week, and it was my job to find stories that could be told both on TV and online. Transitioning to digital marketing and digital public relations was a natural fit, allowing me to use my expertise to create and pitch data-driven campaigns that match what journalists are looking for and secure high-authority placements across a range of client verticals.

How I Spend My Free Time

I love traveling, baking and watching TV. I’m always looking for new places to go, new recipes to try and more reality TV to watch! You can also find me spending time with my husband, Peter, family and friends.

Whether it’s grabbing a bite to eat at a new restaurant or getting last-minute tickets to a Cubs game, I’m in!

It is so rewarding to use my passion for storytelling and analyzing information to create educational and entertaining content online.

Fun Facts About Me

I have a twin sister! We’re fraternal, so no fun “Parent Trap” stories.

Being happily infected with the travel bug, I’m always planning a trip and looking at flights. If you have any tips or tricks using points, send them my way.

I’m a bit of an adrenaline junkie — skydiving, paragliding, ziplining and parasailing are all checked off the bucket list!
