Profession: Writer, Radio Personality, talent promoter and comedienne
I have produced and hosted the Radio program "IMAGINE ITALIA" on Fairchild
Radio's FM96.1 station. Imagine Italia was a creation of Vito Bruno the
Producer of " Telitalia",
a voice widely recognized, by all listeners, as the " Italian voice of Vancouver
I have been involved in journalism and publishing. I was the editor, writer and
publisher of the Italian magazine "ITALIA ALLO SPECCHIO, or CANADA'S MIRROR".
This was a bilingual, monthly Italian-English publication dedicated to the
promotion of Italian culture and art, as well as the cultural life of Vancouver,
in general. Now it's called " It's Your world ...welcome to it !"
I have written and published my own books: "A PASSION FOR", "DIARY OF MARIA
FIERRO and IL MONDO DI MARIA FIERRO ( The World of Maria Fierro) " which contain
Poetry, Astrology and quotes on life and its idiosyncrasies.
Prior to this, I have been involved, for the last twenty years, in various
activities connected to the entertainment industry:
I have performed as a singer in various Vancouver restaurants, and appeared in
shows in theaters and other venues. I have interviewed and promoted most of the
local Italian singers, musicians and artists, as well as non-Italians.
I have acted in a comedy play, written for and presented on the Italian
community television show, in Vancouver.
I have illustrated my interest in all art forms, including dancing, by
producing and managing a dance troupe, which appeared, with success in various
venues, in Vancouver.
As a fluently bilingual, Italian and English, speaker; I have done voice-overs
and narration on Radio and television and, of course, on my own radio program I
performed frequent poetry readings of my own works, as well as of other authors.
My life experiences have unconsciously created this other " Maria " that looks
at life, and finds
humor in this unreasonable, illogical, and self- centered world. Making people laugh is my passion.
NB: My legal name is Maria Loughrey, but I use my maiden name, Fierro, as my
Stage and public name. mf
