Ted Daniel joined Boston 25 News in September of 2004 as a general assignment reporter. Throughout his career, Ted has been front and center on countless breaking news stories. While there's no greater responsibility than providing crucial information to the public, Ted says covering news in Boston goes beyond "breaking news." He loves starting each day never knowing where he'll end up and who he'll meet. He values the trust people place in him to tell their stories and can't think of any job he'd rather be doing!
Prior to joining Boston 25, he was a reporter at WJAR in Providence, R.I. Ted has also held reporter positions at WRCB - NBC in Chattanooga, Tennessee, WTSP- CBS in Tampa, Florida and WVNY-TV, the ABC affiliate in Burlington, Vermont.
While working in Providence, Ted was one of the first reporters on the scene of the Station Nightclub fire in West Warwick, R.I., and covered the tragedy extensively. His assignments have included the 2000 presidential recount in Florida, and the 2004 wildfires in California. While working at WRCB in Chattanooga, he provided continuing coverage of the search for Eric Robert Rudolph in the mountains of North Carolina. Rudolph was captured and eventually confessed to a pipe bomb attack at the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta and setting off bombs at Georgia and Alabama abortion clinics.
Ted has won several awards from the Associated Press for investigative reporting and breaking news coverage. He spends his free time with his family and is a hospice volunteer with Asera Care in Wellesley. Ted grew up in Portsmouth, Rhode Island and is a graduate of the University of Rhode Island.
