Eddie Dowd joined the KITV4 Island News team as a reporter in September of 2019.

Born and raised in New York City, Eddie was only eight years old when the towers fell. He remembers looking out at the Manhattan skyline and seeing the entire area covered in thick black smoke. Scared and confused, he turned on the TV to see the local broadcasters that he grew up watching with his parents, tell him what was happening in a composed and professional manner. Seeing those familiar faces on a day filled with chaos helped an 8 year old boy cope with what was unfolding.

It would become the spark that ignited his passion for broadcasting.

Like the newscasters on that day, Eddie has tried to devote his life to informing the public in an attempt to give back what they gave to him during those uncertain times.
