Marcus Markle

In his role as Communications Manager, Marcus works to celebrate the transformative breadth and impact of the PBS NewsHour’s Student Reporting Labs, primarily through relationship-building and social media channels. Marcus was drawn to this opportunity after having been a public school teacher and, most recently, a communications manager for Geffen Academy at UCLA, a new, innovative school serving grades 6-12 that seeks to challenge traditional school models. Marcus has long been an advocate of expanding opportunities for disenfranchised communities and has worked to empower them to achieve greater, especially in his previous roles that span the non-profit sector and government. Born in Los Angeles, Marcus now lives in Washington, D.C. with his partner, who is a journalist.
