Marcus Washington joined WJZ Eyewitness News in June 2014 as the weekend evening anchor and reporter.

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 veteran Memphis journalist Joe Birch.

Marcus is an award-winning journalist who has worked in: Memphis, Tenn; Charlottesville, Va.; Tulsa, Okla. and most recently Nashville, Tenn.

During the six years he lived in Nashville, Marcus was an active member of the community and supported numerous organizations promoting education and the achievement of local teens.

In 2011, Nashville Lifestyles Magazine named Marcus one of the 25 Most Beautiful People in Nashville, and in 2014, named him one of Nashville’s Black 40 Under 40.

Marcus is a member of The National Association of Black Journalists, Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity Inc. and the Church of Christ. He is also a proud graduate of the University of Memphis.

In his spare time, Marcus loves to travel, check out local restaurants, listen to music, attend live sporting events and meet new people. So, don’t hesitate to say hello if you see him out.
