Mark once considered careers in the newspaper business ("until I realized there was more money in radio") and architecture.  Quite the "Renaissance Man", he also dabbled in music, playing Oboe ("until it killed my lips in Junior High marching band") and trumpet ("hey, I was even First Chair for a few weeks!")  Today his musical ability consists of some singing (privately) and playing eclectic CD's in his politically incorrect, gas-guzzling SUV.






Each week his voice is heard on a variety of programs and commercials via hundreds of radio, TV and digital platforms worldwide. Mark's Southern California talk show airs on San Diego’s Newsradio 600 KOGO weekdays at 7PM Pacific. He's been a frequent guest on Fox News Channel and other national networks, and currently serves as Contributor and Political Analyst on KUSI NEWS Channel 9 in San Diego.

Known for traveling the world to gain insight on important stories, he's covered the Iraq war on location in the Middle East, smuggled Bibles to the underground church in Southeast Asia and done ground-breaking broadcasts from war zones including the Persian Gulf region and Afghanistan. Mark's also visited Russia and made several trips to China, including Tibet. His continuing on-site broadcasts in the USA and around the globe give him a unique perspective on current events.

With the San Diego Radio Broadcasters Association, Mark served as President for a record eight consecutive terms. Radio & Records twice named him to its "All-Star Players" list, citing him as one of only twelve "local legends" in American talk radio.

A strong advocate for the United States military, Mark is a lifetime member of the Navy League, a member of the San Diego Military Advisory Council and has Honorary Plankowner status with the USS Ronald Reagan, commemorating his on-going support of the ship and its crew since commissioning in 2003.
