Matt Berger was the former Digital Director at Marketplace and has worked as a journalist and digital producer for over a decade in the areas of business, technology and arts and lifestyle.

Berger started his journalism career as a daily newspaper reporter in the San Francisco Bay Area. At the height of the tech boom in 2000, he got a job in downtown San Francisco covering high tech and venture capital for the Silicon Valley magazine Upside and its website. When Upside went downside in the 2001 dot-com bubble, Berger moved a few blocks down Market Street as a technology reporter and correspondent for a global news wire service operated by magazine and Internet publisher IDG.

Prior to joining Marketplace in 2010, Berger was the Executive Producer for Interactive at The Taunton Press, a publisher of lifestyle magazines, books, and digital products.
