Early in his career he worked with at-risk youth using counseling and theatre techniques, and he taught theatre for 10 years at the Baltimore School for the Arts. The Marc Steiner Show began broadcasting on Baltimore’s NPR airwaves in 1993, and since then Steiner has become one of Maryland’s most recognized voices and gained national acclaim for his insightful style of interviewing. In 2007 he won a Peabody Award, the most distinguished honor in broadcast media. Steiner was the visionary force behind the founding of WYPR and he also founded Center for Emerging Media, a non-profit media production company with a mission to showcase new voices, tell stories that need to be told, and use the media to help heal our world.
