WCAU Reporter Danny Freeman Joining CNN

By Kevin Eck 

WCAU reporter Danny Freeman is joining CNN as a correspondent.

Freeman posted the news on Twitter, saying he’s “so glad” he can still call Philadelphia home.

While working at the NBC owned Philadelphia station, Freeman worked as an investigative reporter focused on campaign finance, environmental issues, and police accountability.

Freeman returned to the East Coast after working as a political reporter for KNSD in San Diego, where he hosted Politically Speaking, the station’s weekly public affairs show. He was a reporter at KGET in Bakersfield, Calif., before that.

His career in journalism began in Medellin, Colombia, where he reported on politics and the country’s 2014 presidential election. Following his experience abroad, he returned to the U.S. and joined the NBCUniversal Page Program in New York where he worked at MSNBC and the NBC News Decision Desk. He then joined NBC Nightly News and soon after became a campaign embedded reporter covering the 2016 presidential race for NBC News.
