Darci Marchese has worn many hats since arriving at WTOP Radio in July 2005. She's a
multiple Edward R. Murrow award-winning reporter and Executive Producer.
Darci is a two-time winner of the national Edward R. Murrow Award and winner of a
Gracie Award. She was most recently honored for the documentary, "The War That Never
Ends," which highlighted brain injuries endured at war and post traumatic stress
disorder, which has a lasting impact on service men and women and their entire
families, even communities. Her previous series, "Beyond the Purple Heart" also
featured our military heroes who struggle to return to normal lives after
debilitating wounds of war.
Darci is also quite proud of her in-depth series, "The Loneliest Disease," which
explored mental illness, the troubled mental health system and suicide which claims
80 percent more lives than homicides do in this country.
When Darci isn't taking on such hard-hitting topics, she's delving into every aspect
of the housing market. Darci produces a feature, Home Value Highwire.
Darci is proudest of her daughter, Rachel, who is the apple of her eye. Her husband,
Wayne is retired from the U.S. Airforce and is employed with the US Government.
