Ann Costantino

Ann Costantino has been a Baltimore County resident for over twenty years. A graduate of Towson University, Ann earned her bachelors in mass communications after first studying communications and journalism in Arizona and Texas. While a student at Towson, Ann worked as assistant to the executive director of the (former) Advertising Association of Baltimore (AAB), where she managed the organization’s membership, monthly and annual membership events, including its local and regional American Advertising “ADDY” Awards shows in Baltimore and New York, which celebrated creativity in advertising. In Texas, Ann interned with the Austin Chronicle, learning the old school ways of cropping and editing, developing and sizing photographs, and was known to shamelessly pester the “real” reporters on how to write book and concert reviews. A long way from where she started, Ann is originally from Oahu, Hawaii – a place where she learned the value of the aloha spirit. Ann is politically independent and is fiercely committed to integrity in journalism.
