Lino hosts “The Catholic Guy”, heard across North America on SiriusXM Satellite Radio 129: Monday-Friday, 5pm-7pm ET.
He has given talks locally, nationally, and internationally, and was one of the emcees in front of 25,000 people for Pope Benedict XVI’s Youth Rally 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 Personal Media Advisor.
In addition, Lino is a three-time Emmy Award winner. He was co-executive producer on “The Last Flagraiser” – a World War II documentary which aired nationally on CBS. It won the Emmy Award for Documentary, the Scripps-Howard National Journalism Award, the National Headliner Grand Award and the RTNDA Edward R. Murrow Award.
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”, the first person to win an Emmy award for Catholic broadcasting since Bishop Fulton Sheen.
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).
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.
