Marc Sallinger is a Multi-Media Journalist at 9NEWS in Denver, Colorado.
Marc is thrilled to be reporting in his home state and helping tell the stories of the Colorado community.
Born and raised in Golden, Marc's home has always been Colorado. Marc loves to mountain bike, ski, hike, and travel. Ever since he was a young boy, he knew he wanted to be a reporter. Marc would spend hours looking out through the bedroom window to see if he could spot anything that he could film and send to the local television stations. The day he finally got his video on-air was the day he realized he wanted to spend the rest of his life telling others' stories.
Marc moved back home to Colorado in June of 2019 from Knoxville, Tennessee where he spent two years working as a reporter at WBIR-TV. Marc loved his time in Tennessee, focusing a lot of his reporting on the opioid epidemic.
Marc graduated from the University of Southern California. During college, he interned for 60 Minutes and the TODAY show in New York, CBS Evening News in Washington D.C., NBC Nightly News in Los Angeles and KCNC-TV in Denver. Those opportunities helped Marc learn from some of the best in the country how to tell others the stories that matter to them.
Here are some fun facts to help you get to know Marc:
- His first words as a child were in Catalan. His mom is from Spain, so he learned to communicate with his family there from a very young age.
- His dad, mom and grandfather are also journalists.
- He'll be focusing his reporting on Northern Colorado, helping to tell stories around that area.
