Born and raised in New York City, Eddie was eight years old when the towers fell. It was the spark that ignited his passion for broadcasting. On that day, the familiar face of Peter Jennings relaying the accounts of the event in a composed and professional manner helped a scared and confused boy cope with the chaos surrounding him. Like Jennings, he has tried to devote his life to informing the public in an attempt to give back what Jennings gave to him.
He spent two years reporting for Newswatch16, Ithaca College’s Emmy-Award winning local news program. Some examples of his work included covering the rise of heroin overdoses in the region, investigating cuts to student counseling services at Ithaca College, and the next generation of researchers at Cornell who are working on ways to combat obesity.
Interning at both NBC and ABC’s affiliate stations in Boston taught him how to adapt quickly to the different newsrooms and communities they serve.
