Meet the Team

Eugene Daniels

Digital Content Producer

A self proclaimed news nerd, Eugene started his career in local TV news but was looking for something new and different and jumped ship to Newsy in June of 2015. He focuses a lot of his time on political or entertainment news so you can catch him analyzing a presidential race or debating why Shonda Rhimes is the savior television needed. Outside of work, you'll find Eugene with an actual book (gasp!) in his hands or binging on Netflix like it helps pay the bills.
