Charlottesville, Va.

Daniel Grimes joined the NBC 29 team in July of 2019 after graduating with a master's degree from the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University.

He holds a bachelor's degree from the University of Virginia, so he's excited to rediscover the delicious restaurants, sprawling vineyards and sporting events (go 'hoos!) that Charlottesville has to offer.

After undergrad, Daniel taught in Brooklyn through Teach for America. He then recruited for Uncommon Schools, a network of high performing charter schools in the Northeast.

He discovered his passion for media after a friend approached him to host a talk-show on a digital media website. The talk show was not picked up, but the experience ignited Daniel's passion for storytelling.

When he's not at work you can find him eating chocolate or cheese somewhere in town!
