Marc Filippino is an associate producer for Innovation Hub. He grew up on Long Island before moving to New England to pursue a bachelor’s degree in journalism at Boston University.
In his life before radio, Marc was a weekly newspaper reporter who struggled to stay awake during late night city council meetings. He got his start at the Biddeford-Saco-Old Orchard Beach Courier in Maine and later moved onto the Lexington Minuteman and the Cambridge Chronicle newspapers.
Longing for adventure and deep dish pizza, Marc then moved to Chicago where he earned his master’s at DePaul University. While there, he interned and freelanced for the WBEZ show Curious City.
