Emily Cureton is an assignment editor / producer for "On Second Thought." She’s been with GPB since March 2017. Her background includes producing and hosting public radio, newspaper reporting and studying foreign languages. Emily's lived in New York, Texas, California and Oregon; spent time in Russia, and road-tripped through Mexico and Central America. She might help you finish that crossword puzzle, or get overly competitive during a friendly game of Scrabble. And when she's not enjoying the power of words: she's probably outside, sniffing around and greeting strangers with her best friend, Hank the cow dog.
