Daniel Freed


I am a TV producer and reporter with over ten years experience covering a wide variety of topics across multiple platforms.

I am currently producing an hour-long episode of CNBC's "Crime Inc." about the worldwide trade in illegal counterfeit goods. This will be my fourth show for CNBC. Prior to this, I was supervising producer of infoMania, a half-hour weekly program airing on Current TV, Al Gore's Emmy Award-winning cable network. infoMania, offered a comedic look at the world of news and pop culture.

Before joining Current, I studied documentary film at the University of California at Berkeley's Graduate School of Journalism. I have also worked as a print journalist and documentary filmmaker. My writing has appeared in publications ranging from the "Los Angeles Times" to the "Point Reyes Light," a Pulitzer Prize winning community weekly. My documentary work includes an hour-long film about California's Sacramento River, which aired on PBS stations nationwide, and a half-hour film about the search for a used car salesman who organized the assassination of Salvadoran Archbishop Oscar Romero.
