Mary Jo Heath

Mary Jo Heath just finished her sixth season as Radio Host of the Metropolitan Opera broadcasts, hosting both the Saturday matinee broadcasts heard by almost ten million people worldwide each week and those heard on the Met Opera Radio Channel on the SiriusXM Satellite network.

Prior to that appointment she spent nine seasons as the Met's Senior Radio Producer, leading the broadcasts from behind the scenes. During that time her voice was heard on the broadcasts narrating features and interviewing artists, and she was seen on the Met's "Live in HD" series of transmissions into movie theatres around the world interviewing artists.

In her fifteen seasons, she's been part of 1,400+ broadcasts, more than any broadcaster in Met history. She has also served as music critic for the Greenwich Time newspaper and as music advisor to noted opera singers Renée Fleming and Barbara Bonney.
