About

Marcelle Hutchins

Moving to the city has been my dream for years, and I'm thrilled to immerse myself into the diverse culture and to learn what it means to be a Bostonian. I began my career in journalism at the University of Maine at Farmington, where I reported for the campus newspaper, the Farmington Flyer, Mount Blue TV and the Mount Desert Islander.

I received my bachelor's degree in 2012 and moved to Portland, Maine, where I worked for "Maine Calling," an interactive radio talk show on the Maine Public Broadcasting Network.

In the fall of 2013 I was accepted to Emerson College for their two- year graduate program in Broadcast Journalism, and graduated in May 2015 with a master's degree.

Currently, I work at WGBH and contribute to Public Radio International.
