Dino Flammia

I am a digital journalist for New Jersey 101.5FM. I began working with the station in 2007 as a morning news producer (I don't miss the 4 a.m. to 12 p.m. schedule) until my shift into the field. This job is always full of surprises; I never know where I'll be headed to next. In fall 2016 alone, I've covered the chase for the alleged NJ/NY bomber and received a behind-the-scenes look at Ocean County's High Tech Crime Unit. Likes: Dave Matthews Band, stand-up comedy, binge-watching TV. Dislikes: Being a lefty, seafood, germs.
