The Oakland Post

Emily Morris
Emily Morris is the managing editor of The Oakland Post. Her speciality is multimedia creation, editing articles and overseeing The Oakland Post’s weekly production.

Eight years ago, Morris began her media career with her hometown newspapers, The Sandusky Tribune-Recorder and The Sanilac County News — she fell in love immediately with the buzz of newsworthiness and the connection with her audience. 

Upon stepping foot on Oakland University’s campus, she dove into a staff reporter role and began producing weekly articles for The Oakland Post. During her time at OU, she has also occupied the role as WXOU’s news director for two years and took on an internship with Fox 2 News. Currently, she can still be found at WXOU as their public service announcement (PSA) director. 

In the spring, she will be graduating this year with a double major in journalism and communication. Then she plans to take the hands-on experience The Oakland Post has given her and keep telling stories at her next media position. If you have any OU news tips, drop a line to her email ([email protected]).
