Adeshina Emmanuel

Reporter/Producer @Public_Ade aemmanuel@dnainfo.com

Adeshina Emmanuel is a former reporter at DNAinfo Chicago. An African-American mother and Nigerian father raised him in Uptown, and he lives in North Center these days.

You can call him Ade (like “ahday”), which is less of a mouthful, but still hard for some people to pronounce.

Here’s a hint: don’t call him “aid.”

Before joining DNAinfo Chicago in fall 2012, Ade spent a summer reporting on federal government in Washington, D.C. as the New York Times’ 2012 David. E. Rosenbaum Fellow. Before that, the former Loyola University Chicago student spent six months at the Chicago Sun-Times as a wire reporter.

In 2010, Ade spent another summer in D.C. as a reporting intern for the Catholic News Service. He has also held internships with the Better Government Association and the now-defunct Chitowndailynews.org, and worked as a freelance writer for Patch.com and Streetwise Magazine.

Fun Facts: Ade once hugged Will Smith at the State Department in D.C.
