Nick Neville



I’m a News Associate at CNN's Washington bureau, born and raised in Braintree, Massachusetts. I’m passionate about telling stories that inform and leave an impact on people.


Ever since I was a toddler, I remember grabbing my dad’s microphone in our makeshift home studio and speaking gibberish. I found journalism through a passion for writing, and fostered my desire to tell stories through various activities and internships during my time at Boston University.


As a senior, I was the Statehouse correspondent for the Worcester Telegram & Gazette, where I wrote weekly stories covering the latest Beacon Hill politics and forged relationships with legislators. 


A semester in our nation's capital helped develop my passion for political reporting. While in DC, I interned for the longest-running show on television, NBC’s “Meet the Press.” I also have worked with the NBC Boston investigative unit, WEEI and the Boston Globe.


My journalistic endeavors have taken me to Las Vegas to cover the world’s largest tech conference, to Capitol Hill to interview senators, to Fenway Park, and of course, to a Boston blizzard or two. I'm from New England – what do you expect?


After graduation, I returned to DC and landed a dream job at CNN.  I now work on the assignment desk, collaborating with reporters and producers to deliver the top political news to CNN's viewers and readers across all platforms.

My journalistic career began with the Daily Free Press, BU’s independent student newspaper. I eventually served as its sports editor, which included managing a 40-person team and editing all sports content each day.


I want to report on issues that matter to readers and viewers. Journalism is a unique profession – you travel, meet new people and learn about exciting things – but the best part is telling stories that inspire others. Today’s media landscape is constantly evolving, and though it’s hard to predict what’s next, my drive and self-starting nature will help me stay ahead of the next trend. I also hope to be part of the next generation of journalists who build up trust in the media.


When I’m not chasing a story, you can find me settling in for some 90s sitcoms or another Office-binge, listening to the latest Broadway hits or watching the Red Sox.


Everyone has a story, and I can’t wait to tell it. Click around to see samples of my work and resume reel.
