Maria Garcia

Senior Editor, The ARTery

Maria Garcia is the Senior Editor of The ARTery, WBUR's Arts and Culture Team. She leads the strategy for WBUR's arts and culture coverage, both on the air and online.

She came to Boston from New York City where she earned a Master of Arts in journalism, with a focus on arts and culture reporting from Columbia Journalism School.

Before that, Maria reported on politics and public policy along the U.S. - Mexico border for more than a decade.

For most of 2020, she has stepped away from the daily editorial duties of The ARTery to produce a forthcoming podcast for WBUR. (In the meantime, The ARTery is helmed by ARTery acting Senior Editor Tania Ralli.)

Maria is also a queer, first-generation Mexican-American who listens to Selena when she needs some motivation.
