Caleb Hoke

Sr. General Assignment Lead

The best video editor to ever come out of the Cowboy Capital of the World, "Trusty" Caleb left his small Texas town to pursue a Visual Editing and Management degree at The University of Missouri. When he's not editing like a madman, you can find him playing video games, exploring with his dog, or eating donuts. Caleb has worked at Newsy since 2011, but doesn't think his mom really believed that until they put his picture on this page.
