Deputy Editor [News] @nicolebode nbode@dnainfo.com

Nicole Bode is Deputy Editor of News and Data Editor at DNAinfo. She spent the previous eight years as a reporter for the Daily News, where she covered breaking news, education and the court system.

She found her calling in journalism as an intern at the News in 2001, where her first big story was interviewing survivors of the September 11th World Trade Center terrorist attacks. She spent the next five months telling the stories of New Yorkers whose lives were forever changed by that day.

Since then, she has stayed on the front lines of the city's breaking news, covering the Sean Bell shooting by NYPD officers from the trial through to the verdict.

Nicole also earned the 2007 New York Association of Black Journalists award for her coverage of her hometown of New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina.

Since coming to Manhattan in 1997, Nicole has lived in Morningside Heights, the East Village and Lower Manhattan. She got her bachelors degree in Cultural Anthropology from Columbia University and lives downtown.

Fun Fact: Nicole knows how to eat — and pronounce — beignets (New Orleans' delicacy of fried dough covered in powdered sugar.)
