Danny McDonald



Danny McDonald is a general assignment reporter for The Boston Globe, which basically means he covers anything and everything: potholes to police, political patronage to protests, pandemic recovery to pop music. Before his current gig, he worked as the Globe's City Hall reporter, covering three different mayoral administrations. He came to the paper as a graveyard shift digital producer in 2015. A Massachusetts native, McDonald was born in Brighton, raised mostly in rural Worcester County, and educated at UMass Amherst. He also holds a graduate degree in journalism from City, University of London. A working journalist for 17 years, he has worked as a staff reporter for a number of publications, including The MetroWest Daily News, The Standard-Times, and The Bermuda Sun. (Yes, as in the island.)
