Eugene Daniel

Weekend Host

"Aren't you on the news?"

A common question asked since I joined the wonderful WCIC team in 2017 as a weekend host -- and I love it!  Yes, I am the evening anchor for the CBS affiliate, WMBD News in Peoria, which brought me to central Illinois in 2011. I have the unique opportunity to share the news on television and the good news on radio.

Born and raised in Marietta, Georgia, I am a southern gentleman at heart and proud graduate of Elon University in North Carolina.
My father played professional football for the Indianapolis Colts for more than a decade -- but my mom is the real superhero of the family and the single-most influential person in my life.

I am currently pursuing a M. Div from Lincoln Christian University in Lincoln, Illinois, and I remain very active at St. Paul Baptist Church in Peoria, mostly serving young adults and children.
