Meet the Team
Ben Schamisso is Newsy's resident Belgian whose international upbringing aids in his storytelling. Formerly the lead videographer for Belgium's most prestigious football (not soccer) team and producer for the Chicago Tribune, Ben is now a culture reporter in Newsy's Chicago bureau. When he’s not reading camera manuals for fun, you can catch him playing tennis or convincing his colleagues that Belgium will win the next World Cup. Want to chat with Ben? Well, you're in luck. He speaks three languages. Feel free to email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
