Elisa Tang found her love for storytelling at the age of five; with her pen and pad in hand, she chatted with strangers around Central Park about their lives, as her father played baseball on the nearby field.
Now, at 23-years-old, Elisa is an award-winning journalist, pursuing her dreams of becoming a digital news producer. She currently works as an Associate Producer creating content for new media on Time Inc.’s People/Entertainment Weekly Network. She enjoys developing innovative ways in which the streaming audience can enjoy the content she produces about entertainment and human interest stories.
Elisa is a Hofstra alumna whose production experience includes working as a Production Associate at NBC’s Today Show, where she pitched newsworthy stories and ideas for both on-air and digital content, and developing digital content for MTV Digital as a Production Assistant.
Her past accolades include a Gracie Award for Outstanding Investigative Program or Feature, her piece “Skin Deep: The Rise of Self-Harm,” which put a spotlight on the growing issue of depression among young women. Elisa is also a proud 2014 New York Women in Communications Scholarship Recipient, and to this day, she produces insightful, inspiring video content for the organization.
