Marco Werman is The World’s host. He has been working in journalism since he was 16 when he worked as a copy-boy at the News and Observer in Raleigh, North Carolina. His journalism experience has run the gamut from documentary photography, print, radio and television. A former Peace Corps volunteer, Werman got his start in radio while freelancing in Burkina Faso, West Africa, for the BBC World Service, where he later worked as a producer. “Radio impressed me in Africa,” says Werman. “Everyone had one, broadcasts happened in many languages, and in the two coups I witnessed, the radio station was important booty: it and the electrical generator were always the first targets.”
