Ann Costantino

Freelance Investigative Reporter ---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. Ann worked as assistant to the executive director of the (former) Advertising Association of Baltimore (AAB), where she managed the organization’s 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. 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, fiercely committed to integrity in journalism and is a member of the Investigative Reporters and Editors (IRE) professional organization.
