In addition, he has worked in television since 1998. He was co-executive producer on “The Last Flagraiser” – a World War II documentary which aired nationally on CBS.

From 1998-2004, Lino was host and executive producer of “Generation Cross”. The show was broadcast across the United States and Canada. Lino won back-to-back Emmy awards as host of “Generation Cross”. He also produced “Champions of Faith” – a Major League Baseball film featuring Mike Piazza, David Eckstein, Jeff Suppan, Mike Sweeney and more.
He has worked as a features story reporter for WCCO-TV (the CBS owned and operated station in Minneapolis) as well as a weekly pop culture commentator for KMSP-TV (the FOX station in Minneapolis).
He has given talks locally, nationally, and internationally, and was one of the emcees in front of 25,000 people for the Pope’s Youth Rally in Yonkers, New York.
In 2012, Cardinal Timothy Dolan, Archbishop of New York and named by TIME Magazine as one of the most influential people in the world, hired Lino to be the Cardinal’s Media Manager. This includes the Cardinal’s national television appearances, his radio show “Conversation with Cardinal Dolan”, books, and social media presence.
Lino has a bachelor’s degree in communications and a master’s degree in theology. He has lived in Italy, The Bahamas, Minnesota, and currently lives in New York City. And he’s really bad at taking himself this seriously.
