Mario is a Congressional aide turned lobbyist turned writer and commentator (there’s nothing he loves more than turning!)
He’s contributed to outlets that include The Hollywood Reporter, The Huffington Post, Us Weekly, The Denver Post, and Travel Weekly, among others. He was Washington Correspondent for Public Radio International’s Fair Game with Faith Salie; the “Channel Serf” television columnist for The Washington City Paper; host and co-executive producer of the WRC/NBC 4 pilot, PowerHouse; and a staff writer for two seasons on the TV series Whoa! Sunday with Mo Rocca.
Oh, and somewhere along the way, he turned from Chilean to American.
In this installment of Soundcheck's series That Was A Hit?!?, Mario Correa explains how "One Night in Bangkok," a song from a musical about chess, became a chart-topping pop hit.

Plus, a sharp-eyed psychologist uncovers the hidden love codes in your instant messages, and we hear from New Yorkers who find novel ways to keep the romance burning. Come celebrate Valentine's Day with RelationShow!
