Henry Gomez has come a long way from his days as Editor-in-Chief of The Jambar, the student-run newspaper at Youngstown State University.

Gomez has been covering politics in Ohio since 2011, but today he shared the news via his Twitter account he has been named NBC's Senior National Political Reporter.

Gomez attended YSU from 1999 through 2003, while working at The Tribune-Chronicle in Warren. After graduation, he interned at The Sacramento Bee in California and came back to Ohio to work at The Plain Dealer, eventually becoming their chief political writer.

Gomez accepted a political reporter position with BuzzFeed from 2017 to Jan. 2021, and then started covering national politics from the Midwest for NBC News' digital platform.

Gomez is a Boarman native.
