Growing up in the Detroit area, WJR‘s Marie Osborne says her father would often ask her, “why do you ask ‘why’ so often?“
She knew from a young age she wanted to be the person with a front row seat to history.
In her more than four decades of journalism, Marie has reported from around the U.S., Europe, and China. Marie’s work has been heard on WJR, ABC and CBS radio networks, Voice of America, and the BBC. She is a proud graduate of the University of Detroit Mercy, a three-time winner of the national Edward R. Murrow Award, and the winner of a national Headliner Award. Marie has been honored multiple times by the Michigan Association of Broadcasters and the Associated Press.
Marie says the best part of her job is telling the stories that keep people connected to one another through better understanding. She’s been an adjunct journalism instructor at Wayne State University, where she often told her students to simply “Be curious. Be honest.“
Marie and her husband are parents to three children who often vacation together and live to tell about it.
