Marcus Smith serves as producer and anchor for Thinking Aloud. His life in radio spans a fruitful decade
with BYU Broadcasting, where he was long the morning host for Classical 89 (KBYU-FM) and where he continues
to serve as senior radio producer. With a master’s degree in German literature from BYU (1992), Marcus has
worked as a writer, editor, translator, teacher, and composer of sacred vocal music. He’s known as a
wordsmith, with a strong hankering to place the right word in the right place at the right time … at least
as often as occasion permits. He and his wife Sarah Cox Smith are former Fulbright Scholars (with studies
in Germany and Japan), avid genealogists, gardeners, hikers, wannabe fine chefs, and the parents of four
super spunky children (two girls, two boys).
