For more than 30 years Mark has worked in broadcast news in the four-State Region. During that time he has won over two dozen awards including Best Investigative Reporter two years in a row from the Associated Press. Starting his career in radio Mark worked at four local stations and has also done free-lance reports for NPR, ABC Radio News, and CNN Radio.
Eventually Mark added video to his stories as he transitioned to television working for Fox60 in Martinsburg, WV. For the past 25 years Mark has worked at WDVM-TV and has been the station’s News Director for eighteen of those years.
Each year Mark volunteers to work on the Rumsey Radio Hour. This old style radio program originates from Shepherdstown, WV. In addition to producing this annual fundraiser show, the Rumsey Radio Hour gives Mark an opportunity to step away from the serious side of broadcasting and do his vocal impersonations.
For recreation, Mark enjoys canoeing, boating, and Ham radio.
As a longtime resident of the area, Mark feels a strong attachment to the region and is keenly interested in providing the best in news coverage.
