Max Marcilla graduated from the University of Maryland, College Park in May 2020 with a degree in broadcast journalism. He joined the NBC29 team as a multimedia journalist in June 2020.
Before he came to Charlottesville, he was a reporter with the University of Maryland’s Capital News Service Broadcast Bureau, where he covered Maryland legislature and the state’s elected officials in Congress. He also interned at WUSA9 in Washington, D.C., and NJTV News, the PBS station in New Jersey.
Max was also the station director for WMUC Sports, the student-run sports radio station at UMD, and worked as an announcer and producer with the Big Ten Network Student U.
While he spent most of his upbringing in Northern New Jersey, he’s proud to be born in New York City. He’s excited to call Central Virginia his new home.
Outside of the newsroom, Max is an avid fan of the Mets, Knicks, and Terps, and enjoys learning about history and good journalism.
