Will Marfuggi is a package deal. Currently pulling double-duty at E! News as an on-air correspondent and Emmy nominated field producer, Will produces pieces both in-front-of and behind-the-camera. His long list of interviewees include all of today’s hottest celebrities, athletes, musicians, and actors on-set and on the red carpet, as well as covering award shows, festivals, and most recently the Sochi 2014 and London 2012 Olympic Games.
Born and raised in Oldwick, New Jersey, Will grew up with strong family values and ties to both his Italian father’s and Irish mother’s heritage. Will’s father is the successor to the family eyewear business, Victory Optical, a collection of classic American eyewear designs that have been in the same family for four generations. Will attended the prestigious Delbarton School in New Jersey for high school and went on to graduate with a double major B.A. in History and Theatre from the College of the Holy Cross in Massachusetts. He moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in television production after a brief stint as a legal assistant for an accredited east coast law firm after college. He started as a production assistant for the Style Network’s Style Court which led to an associate producer position for E!’s Celebrities Uncensored and various E! original specials. He began as an associate producer for E! News and quickly rose within the ranks as one of their most sought after field producers.
After a stroke of luck and a charming on-camera interview with Angelina Jolie on the 2012 Oscars red carpet for E!’s Live from the Red Carpet, Will began his pursuit of on-air correspondent. In less than two years, he has rapidly made a name and place for himself as an E! News on-air personality and friendly face to many actors, athletes, and musicians. He has covered post-show red carpets for American Idol, Dancing with the Stars, X Factor, The Voice as well as a multitude of set visits, premiere parties, and events. Will also regularly hosts E! Online’s daily live web-series Live from E!.
In addition to his E! News on and off camera duties, Will has been the go-to producer for Ryan Seacrest and Giuliana Rancic for all of E!’s Live from the Red Carpet award show live interviews and has been credited with producing some of E!’s most successful on-air talent. He has also worked as a freelance producer for ABC’s Good Morning America, Bravo’s A-List Awards and the American Music Awards Pre-Show.
He currently resides in the Los Feliz portion of Los Angeles and spends his free time hiking, training in mixed-martial arts, discovering new music, and riding his Vespa around town. He is also a connoisseur of iced coffee and chocolate croissants.
