Chance Seales

Host, "The Why"

Chance Seales hosts Newsy's evening show "The Why." He's led national coverage of presidents, Congress and the Supreme Court from Washington for broadcast companies like Nexstar and Media General, and worked at Newsy in its earliest days. Chance and his husband live in D.C. and are the (way too) proud dads of Bear and Peggy, the world's sweetest French bulldogs.
