Marcia Dick grew up in Malden and when she was a kid, would fight her dad over who got to read the Globe sports section. She got her first journalism job straight out of college at my hometown paper, where she learned the business. After a brief stop in Tampa, she came to the Globe in 1988.
Marcia believes being a native of the North Shore helps her understand what’s important to our audience: Stories that reflect quality of life such as development, taxes, and what beach you can get a parking space at a decent price this summer.
