Mark first tuned in to public radio in the late 70s while attending Marymount College in Salina.
He completed a master’s degree at the University of Georgia at Athens, and started working as a classical music announcer and jazz producer at WUGA when it signed on in 1987. That part-time job grew to a full-time position as an announcer and producer. He came to Wichita in 1989, and during his time at KMUW, has served as Program Assistant, Program Director, and as General Manager since 1994.
By virtue of serving as manager of KMUW, Mark is a member of the Kansas Public Broadcasting Council, a quasi-state agency that exists to advocate for public broadcasting radio and TV in Kansas. Mark has served on the KPBC since its inception in 1993, has served as secretary, treasurer and Vice Chair and is currently Chair.
He would appreciate your comments about how public broadcasting serves your needs and your suggestions about ways to make it better.
Mark is married to fellow public radio fan Dana, and they live on the beautiful west side of Wichita with their daughter Sydney.
