Germantown Native Kahlil Greene Joins Nickelodeon’s Revamped ‘Nick News’ as Correspondent

Kahlil Greene, known by many as the “Gen-Z Historian”, has just announced that he will be a correspondent on Nickelodean’s revamped children’s news show, Nick News. Greene, a Germantown native, was born at Holy Cross Hospital, attended Daly Elementary School and Fox Chapel Elementary School before moving on to Neelsville Middle School (all in Germantown) and then Poolesville High School before attending Yale University and becoming the school’s first Black student body President.

“Without giving too much away, the segment I host on this first episode is about misinformation and how you can’t always believe what you see on the internet. How timely and necessary is that!?”, Greene wrote in an announcement on Instagram. Nick News, which originally ran from 1992-2015, took the form of a highly rated and recognized news program for children and teenagers alike, discussing important social, political and economic issues in a format intended for both children and adults. The show was brought back in 2020.

Greene told us the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Washington (specifically the Germantown branch) played a big role in his childhood. In addition to going nearly every day after school, he would also attend all of their summer camps. He is now a big advocate for the program.

More on Kahlil Greene, per his website: Kahlil Greene, also known as the “Gen-Z Historian”, is a New York Times and Forbes Magazine recognized digital educator with over 600,000 followers and 20mm views across his Tiktok, Instagram, and LinkedIn profiles. He has authored op-eds about Gen Z and justice in the Washington Post, LA Times, and Harvard Business Review. Kahlil also graduated from Yale with a degree in History and served as the college’s first-ever Black student body president. Kahlil is now a full-time, self-employed speaker, influencer, and educator and is known for his TikTok series, Hidden History–which dives into stories of American injustice–and for his commentary about cultural appropriation. Throughout his nascent career, Kahlil has already worked with organizations like Meta, Microsoft, and the White House. Kahlil’s main goal is to share knowledge about history, culture, and politics from a new, engaging perspective.
