A Chicago native, he moved to St. Louis in 1979 and quickly became a Cardinals fan for life after the 1982 World Series. He started in radio when he was just 15 years old and his answer to the most important question in St. Louis is: Parkway West class of 1983.

Mark is a member of the Broadcast Film Critics Association (BFCA) and his reviews are heard on KMOX, BXR radio in Columbia, Missouri and “Great Day St. Louis” on KMOV channel 4. He’s also a member of the Broadcast Journalist Television Association (BJTA).

He’s an avid cyclist, fisherman, hunter and is passionate about music—especially Bruce Springsteen. Mark is married and has two children, two dogs, three cats—and a very powerful vacuum.
