Hey everyone, I'm Mark. I was born in Chicago and raised in the suburbs. Most nights you can find me drinking a Miller Lite and watching the Bears, Bulls, Cubs, or Hawks. I am obsessed with my dachshund, Murphy, and am not afraid to tell you about it! I graduated from Northern Illinois University with a degree in Acting and later graduated from The Second City in Chicago where I pursued my passion for comedy. I come to Quincy and KICK-FM after hosting a morning show in Macomb, Illinois. And I am a lover of history and random facts, so please feel free reach out and connect with me!
