She Has a Juris Doctor Degree
Looking at Emily’s academic qualifications, it is evident that she had a very solid educational background from high school up to the University level. She first graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science from the University of Washington.
Moving further for more knowledge, the California native enrolled at the University of San Fransisco where she earned a Juris Doctor degree in 2006. She went on to intern for Judge John Noonan of the United States Courts of Appeal for the Ninth Circuit and was able to travel to several African countries like South Africa and Uganda, both as an intern and as a volunteer for orphans.
Emily’s Career as a Criminal Defense Attorney and TV Analyst
Coming down to her professional career, Emily Compagno worked as a criminal defense attorney after passing the California Bar in the late 2000s. She then joined the Oakland Raider’s cheerleading squad, the Raiderettes, where she rose to become squad captain. Moreso, she was one of four lucky NFL cheerleaders privileged to represent the league at the launching of NFL China in Beijing and Shanghai. The legal practitioner then worked as a civil litigator until she attained the position of general attorney in 2010.
Currently, in addition to her practice as a lawyer, Emily Compagno is also known for appearing on-air as a legal analyst. She is a famous commentator on Fox Business Network as well as the Fox News Channel. Emily also features on radio shows and magazines where she equally offers her analytic skills.
Fox Nation later offered her the chance to host her own show titled Crimes That Changed America. The show began airing on the 9th of March 2020. Her hard work and dedication appear to not have been in vain as she has a lot to show for her years as both a lawyer and analyst.
As for her activities on social media, the brown-haired and hazel-eyed TV personality is active on Twitter where she has over 48 thousand followers. There is also a similar growing number on both her Instagram and Facebook accounts.
Emily Compagno Juggles Her Professional Life With Family Life
Despite being a jack of many trades, Emily Compagno still makes out time for her family as she is a married woman. She joined the league of wedded Fox TV hosts on September 14. 2017 when she exchanged marriage vows with her heartthrob, Peter Riley.
Their wedding, which was hosted in Italy, was a private affair with only family and close friends in attendance. Emily was a very radiant bride as she took to Instagram to announce the happy occasion. Unfortunately, the wife of Peter Riley has not been generous with details about her wedding. She even took her time to release the photos of her nuptials which surfaced early in 2020.
The couple’s union has now endured for over two years. Perhaps it might be too early to start expecting the patter of small feet in the home of Emily Compagno and her husband, but we can’t help but note the fact that they are yet to increase their family. Whether or not the couple has plans in that regard, only time will tell.
Prior to her marriage to Peter Riley, Emily’s dating life was shrouded in mystery as she is not one to come out in the open with the details of her love life. Regardless, she was once rumored to have dated a couple of sportsmen in the past, although there are no exact details about the persons involved.

With her vested interest in sports-related matters and her role on television, it is no surprise to see that Emily Compagno maintains a very healthy body. You would not get it wrong if you describe her as a stunning beauty as her amazing body structure distinguishes her among her ilk.
