Associate Digital Producer


Dylan Miettinen is an associate digital producer for Marketplace. He's based in Brooklyn, New York.

A graduate of the University of Minnesota, Dylan served as editor-in-chief of the campus newspaper, the Minnesota Daily. His work also appears in CNN, MinnPost, the Minnesota Reformer, Sahan Journal and Literary Hub.

When not constantly redecorating his apartment, Dylan can be found exploring the many coffee shops and wine bars New York has to offer. Originally from Omaha, Nebraska, he had his first foray into journalism at age 10 when he worked for his elementary school's newspaper. (Though it could hardly be called such a thing.)
