Mark's primary duty at KLBJ is to keep Sgt. Sam and Ed from strangling each other during Austin's Morning News on KLBJ. Listen to the show any weekday between 5:30 and 10 and you'll know why that is no easy task. Mark, Ed and Sgt. Sam take on the biggest and most controversial stories facing Austin. Sometimes we have to spray the guys with the fire extinguisher from the staff lounge, but that's ok .
After his morning verbal wrestling match with Ed and Sgt. Sam, Mark moves into his other role as Program Director of NewsRadio 590 KLBJ. Got a question about KLBJ? Got a suggestion or complaint? Mark's the guy. firstname.lastname@example.org or 832-4051.
When Mark is not doing the morning show or listening to the station, he loves to spend time with his family. Mark and Carol have a daughter, Catherine, and son, Mark Jr.
Sgt. Sam is eagerly awaiting the days when Mark has both teenagers driving. Sam is fully convinced he will get great joy in watching Mark deal with those challenges.
Mark has also been a member of the Rotary Club of Austin since 1994 and currently serves as Vice-Chair of the Board of Directors for the club's charitable foundation.
The Rotary Club is Austin's oldest community service organization.
