Q&A: Ben FM's Marilyn Russell


Marilyn Russell, 50, Manayunk 
Morning Show Host at 95.7 Ben FM

» Coolest thing about her job: Getting to interview really cool people. We just had Jake Johnson on the show. He’s one of the roommates on the show New Girl. Dr. Oz was also a great interview. 

» Last thing she read: I’m halfway through the second book in the Hunger Games series. I can’t put it down. 

» Last thing she ate that she loved: The scallops at Restaurant Alba in Malvern

» Perfect vacation: I’d like to go to Bora Bora. I want a little hut at the end of nowhere with no cell or tech service.

» Role models: I did watch Oprah every day for 10 years, but also Katie Couric. 

» What she likes most about herself: My survival skills. Radio is a tough industry. 

» What she likes most about others: As host of “Woman of the Week,” I sit down with so many women who do an extraordinary job of running nonprofits. 

» Pet peeve: I’m a big fan of proper grammar. Being from Philly, I hate hearing “yooz.” 

» Country or rock? I’m an alt-rocker all the way.

» Words to live by: Have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.
