Joel Marshall

Joel Marshall joined MPR | APM in January 2020 to work with the community of individual Marketplace supporters and connect them to their impact at Marketplace. Prior to joining the MPR | APM team, Joel worked at the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation in Los Angeles and KMXT public radio in Alaska, where he worked in a variety of roles—from fundraising manager and event planner to on-air host. Joel was drawn to MPR | APM because of his passion for public media, belief in Marketplace’s mission to make the country smarter about the economy, and the opportunity to connect with donors who share those passions. Joel grew up in Southern California, where he attended the University of California, Irvine, and majored in Literary Journalism. When he’s not listening to Make Me Smart or talking with a supporter, you can find Joel on his bike, climbing a mountain, or looking for his new favorite restaurant.
