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

by MCS Staff

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.
