Nick News and Co-Host Khalil Greene (MoCo Native) Nominated For Children’s and Family Emmy Award

Nick News, with co-host/correspondent Kahlil Greene (a MoCo native known by many as the “Gen-Z Historian”), has been nominated for a Children’s and Family Emmy Award for Best Non-Fiction Program. He has been with the revamped version of the show since February of this year.

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.

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.

Kahlil also graduated from Yale with a degree in History and served as the college’s first-ever Black student body president.

Throughout his nascent career, Kahlil has already worked with organizations like Meta, Microsoft, and the White House.
