Mark has been involved with community radio and journalism since the early 1990s, starting at Boulder's KGNU as a free-form music host and news producer. That led to nearly a decade working as an audio editor and sound designer in Colorado and Arizona. But he missed journalism and in 2006 joined the Tucson NPR station - first as a reporter and then as senior field correspondent. His work was recognized with a National Edward R. Murrow Award for feature reporting and a Regional Murrow for documentary production.
Mark returned to Colorado in 2014 to help Cortez community station KSJD build a news department. That was followed by three years as Content Director at KSUT in Durango and a year as Programming & Operations Director at KBUT in Crested Butte. He's a Boulder native who digs cast-iron cooking, craft beer, offbeat and classic film, spacey music, and tricky landscapes.
