Award-winning veteran reporter and Pulitzer Prize-nominated newspaper columnist — Marc Munroe Dion (born 1950s) is an old-school newsman who fell out of a Frank Capra movie, complete with pipe and fedora. Born in the struggling former cotton mill town of Fall River, Mass., Dion's sense of humour sounds more like a barroom than a newsroom, and his political observations are more concerned with issues than political parties. Dion’s column, "Living and Dion" appeared in The Herald News for 24 years. His long-running WSAR radio show was closed down in May 2021 and he was forced out of the Herald, moving to the Falls River Reporter in 2018. First column: "Maybe It's Us".
