Michelle Pollino has enjoyed a career adventuring along winding roads, driven by her heart. With a genuine love for people and human connection, her career was launched when she became the morning show co-host for Star 104.5 in Philadelphia, which was #1 in its demographic for several years. CBS and NPR radio reporter/anchor positions soon followed. Pollino then ventured behind the camera to produce for WYBE TV Philadelphia, where she earned an Emmy nomination. Not stopping there, she jumped into reality television, producing and directing more than 250 episodes of both network and cable reality television for NBC, Showtime, TLC, Fox, CBS, A&E, Logo and IFC. Successful shows included Trading Spaces, Ambush Makeover, Searching Forand Selling Spelling Mansion.
The connection between Pollino, other people and their stories continued to grow, as did her repertoire of work. She dove into filmmaking, directing two award-winning and critically acclaimed narrative short films, and producing three features, including Two Minutes Later and Mayor Cupcake, which stars Lea Thompson and Judd Nelson. She recently executive produced the Darren Stein-helmed film G.B.F., starring Megan Mullally and Natasha Lyonne, which premiered at the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival and is currently the opening and/or closing night film at festivals around the country.
Michelle also somehow found time to be a chef apprentice at Cafette Restaurant in Philadelphia, learned to fly planes while reporting traffic in San Diego, and through years of astrological study, consults with individuals to discover love connections and reveal strengths, talents and growth opportunities by sharing her insights from the stars.
