In addition to anchoring the morning newscasts, Marcus is the co-host of NBC Bay Area’s Race in America: The Conversation alongside Jessica Aguirre.

Before joining NBC Bay Area, Marcus served as anchor and reporter at WJZ (CBS) in Baltimore, Maryland.
While working in “Charm City,” he covered a broad range of stories, but his life and approach to reporting were most deeply impacted by Freddie Gray’s death and its aftermath. Amid Gray’s funeral, explosive unrest in the city, the political fallout, and community rebuilding. Marcus was there reporting live from the front lines and continued the months following. David Zurawik with the Baltimore Sun writes.
“Marcus Washington again did solid and authoritative reporting for WJZ from Penn and North avenues, the epicenter of protests following the funeral of Gray last year.” His careful and caring coverage of the unrest earned him an Emmy nomination. Furthermore, dreams of becoming “one of the people who tells the news” came early for Marcus. He still remembers sitting in his living room at the age of 5 and telling his mom, “I want to do that,” referring to the work of veteran Memphis journalist Joe Birch.

Marcus’ career in media began while he was a student at the University of Memphis, after inquiring about reading news for Memphis’ WUMR-FM morning show. On his third day of orientation, Marcus received an invitation from the station manager to fill in to host Thursday’s 4p-7p slot. After just 5 minutes on-air, the station manager was so impressed with Marcus’ voice and personality that he walked into the DJ booth and told Marcus, “From now on, this is your slot.”
Beginning at that moment, Marcus became one of the hosts of Memphis’ only jazz station. He went on to work as an associate producer in Memphis, Tennessee; and as a reporter in Nashville, Tennessee; Tulsa, Oklahoma; and Charlottesville, Virginia, all before his time in Baltimore. Marcus has been acknowledged by outlets like the Baltimore Sun and the Washington Post for his reporting.
He is also flattered (and amused!) to be named one of “Nashville’s 25 Most Beautiful People” (per Lifestyles Magazine in 2011) and number fourteen among “The 50 Hottest Anchors in the World” (according to Buzzfeed.com in 2017). Marcus is also a member of The National Association of Black Journalists, Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Incorporated, and the Church of Christ. He is excited to explore the Bay Area and all the great treasures, especially the food, music, and community
