ABOUT

Michelle Pollino is a writer, reporter, journalist, and filmmaker. Professionally I write and voice short bursts of news on the entertainment and pop culture industry for Fox News and SiriusXM Radio, where millions stop for a listen throughout their day on Fox News Headlines.

 

My career began while attending San Diego State University where I learned to fly planes and report highway gatherings morning and night. But after a near-fatal plane crash, my hometown of Philadelphia beckoned, and it was there that I found myself in the newsrooms of CBS and NPR, and NBC.

Finding more interest in stories of marginalized voices in the Philadelphia community, I ventured behind the camera to produce for WYBE TV, where I earned an Emmy nomination. But I quickly learned public television is not a sustainable career, so I landed in reality television, producing and directing more than 250 episodes of both network and cable tv at NBC, Showtime, TLC, Fox, CBS, A&E, Logo, and IFC. Successful shows included Trading Spaces, Ambush Makeover, and Searching For.

 

After writing episodes for these shows in an auspicious moment I found myself on a film set. I plunged into filmmaking by directing and producing. Some even made it on the big screen, including G.B.F starring Megan Mullally and Natasha Lyonne and the indie family feature Mayor Cupcake, starring Lea Thompson and Judd Nelson. But, alas, producing is a moneyed-persons game, and each year my bank account became a dry gulch. 

 

In 2012, I started my own podcast, which did well, but Spotify wasn't yet launched, and then Fox News called. It was here that I've been ever since as an entertainment critic and reporter for FOX radio and FOX.com.

 

Covid lockdown in 2020 gave me the time to focus and write my first book and I have found myself on the verge of another crossroad.  The Fracturing is Necessary explores the current divide in the United States through my own heartbreaking journey from the streets of Philadelphia to the biggest and most polarizing newsrooms in the country. 

I've also recently been named a fellow for FAIR in the arts. a nonpartisan professional network dedicated to advancing a common culture in arts, entertainment, & media that champions freedom of expression, open-mindedness, and the ability to strive for excellence in all creative endeavors. 

You can find a preview and proposal for The Fracturing here.

Every day I have the privilege to talk about the entertainment industry on Sirius XM Fox News Headlines and Fox News. In my free time, I write about the simplest things and the hardest things. About the people that I've met and meet and how they've touched me. About nature and the splendor of the smell of the California sunset after it rains. Only thing is, you've never heard these stories. One day you will.  Glad you stopped by, connect with me on social media and say hi, soon.
