Mark said what he likes most about working in radio is being able to inform and entertain - and provide the most informative and professional broadcast. Doing play-by-play for sporting events is the most fun for him. His favorite radio memory - had to be calling the games for the State Championship run by the Wheelersburg Pirates Football Team in the 2017 season. Go Burg! Mark's favorite quote: "A life is not important except in the impact it has on other lives." - Jackie Robinson
