Best News 411

Snoop Daniel

Daniel, the weekday afternoons guy on 96.3 FM RnB, has the kind of voice that balances apathy with fascination, and adjusts on nearly every word. He can sound impassioned while rushing through a segment or damn near careless when talking slowly. It’s a gift that plays out most effectively when he’s delivering the 411, his intermittent news report, in which he interjects so many ad-libs and “details are on our Facebook” quips that the value is not in the news getting reported, but rather the way in which it’s delivered. We work for a newspaper and read news all day, every day – yet still on our drives home from work each day, we can’t help but tune in to Snoop.
