Marshall Terry

Reporter/Newscaster

Marshall came to WFAE after graduating from Appalachian State University, where he worked at the campus radio station and earned a degree in communication.  He divides his time between delivering newscasts during the day at the top of every hour and reporting on everything from hot peppers to a museum dedicated to the theory that Abraham Lincoln was born in North Carolina.    Outside of radio, he loves listening to music and going to see bands - preferably in small, dingy clubs.
