Donny Ede Donny Ede

Hello! My name is Donny, and I have been with ABC 10 since last year. I’m originally from St. Clair Shores (just north of Detroit), and moved up here in 2014. A graduate of Northern Michigan University, I was first drawn to the Upper Peninsula for my love of nature and the natural resources. Most of my weekends are spent on hiking trails, or at a camp site. I’m an avid film buff, so much so that Film Studies was one of my minors at NMU. The Upper Peninsula has been a pleasant place to call home, and covering this region has been a joyful experience. I am grateful for all of the wonderful people I have met on the job, and I look forward to meeting more!
