Marc Steiner hosted The Marc Steiner Show on WYPR for over 14 years. Advocating for social justice and spreading “light, not heat” are his missions in life. A passionate community spokesman, he has worked a variety of jobs and has served as an educator and social activist. During the tumultuous 60’s, Marc founded The Liberation News Service, The Washington Free Press, and The South Baltimore Voice. In the 70’s and 80’s, he served as a counselor for juvenile offenders in state prisons and worked with at-risk children and families, street gangs, and vocational high schools. After a brief career as a marketing consultant and political campaign organizer, he moved into producing radio commercials and industrial films for a large advertising agency. Marc’s love of the arts led him to found a theater program in the Maryland state prison system and the Family Circle Theater, a company of teenagers that produced original productions about adolescent issues. Steiner spent ten years on the faculty of Baltimore School for the Arts. He is the President of the Center for Emerging Media. He resides in Sparks. Send him an email.
Jessica Phillips is from Ocean City, Maryland. Yes, people really are from there. She went to Kenyon College, a beautiful little bubble on top of a hill surrounded by miles of cornfields. She comes to the Center for Emerging Media from WYPR 88.1 FM, where she was a producer for the Marc Steiner Show for over two years. Prior to that, she got her start as a production assistant at the Soundprint Media Center. She likes that if you find yourself in a Baltimore neighborhood you don’t like, usually walking just a block or two will put you somewhere totally different. Greg Minah is her favorite artist.
