about the host
Benno Schmidt began reporting as a sixteen-year-old intern at CNN before the first Gulf War. The son of a famed first amendment scholar, Schmidt grew up listening to the best minds debate the challenges in ensuring a free press.
Benno’s work has appeared on Sunday Morning, The Early Show, NBC Nightly News, The Today Show, MSNBC, CNN and elsewhere. As reporter and anchor for NBC’s Miami flagship WTVJ, Benno led coverage of the defining stories of the past decade, including the Elian Gonzalez imbroglio, the voter recounts in Florida’s Presidential contests, and the terrorist connections in Florida after 9/11.
Benno has reported from nearly every state in the U.S. and brings experience in covering Washington after field anchoring hours of live coverage of High Definition News’ coverage of President Bush’s 2nd inauguration. Benno’s proven ability to take and hold air for hours makes his live coverage resonate with viewers. He led HDNews’ coverage of the record Florida hurricane season of 2005, chasing storms from Key West to northern Florida.
Benno led High Definition News’ coverage of the Middle East, visiting every major city in Israel. He also reported from the Israeli/Lebanese border during the shooting war with Hezbollah, capturing some of the first war images in high definition for a U.S. network while accompanying Israeli tank movements.
Benno left HDNews in April 2007 after nearly three years with the network, and currently contributes as a correspondent, anchor, and producer to various networks. Benno’s latest assignment is host of dLifeTV, where he brings not only a wealth of reporting and television production experience, but experience as a person living with type 1 diabetes.
