Chris Maccini

Marketing Coordinator & Arts Producer

Chris grew up in Spokane and has many fond childhood memories of being subjected to the voices of SPR while in the backseat of his parents' car.  After moving to Upstate New York and graduating from Colgate University with a degree in Economics, he spent six years living in Seattle working for non-profit organizations and sailing around the Puget Sound with his wife, Tracie, and their boat-dog, Mollusk. He returned to Spokane to attend graduate school at Eastern Washington University and graduated with an MFA in Creative Writing. 

With Spokane Public Radio as an intern since May 2017 and as an employee since June 2018, Chris coordinates the station's marketing efforts and helps produce arts programming such as "The Bookshelf," "Poetry Moment," "Northwest Arts Review," and more.
