Mark worked three years at WSET-TV in the Roanoke-Lynchburg area. There Mark covered everything from city council and the General Assembly to an unprecedented windstorm that knocked out Central Virginia’s power for a whole week. In December 2011 when gunshots broke out on Virginia Tech’s campus a second time, Mark was on the scene providing local coverage, as well as network coverage for ABC affiliates and World News Now.
Mark’s first on-air reporting work was at KOMU-TV in Columbia, Missouri. In 2010 Mark graduated Magna Cum Laude from the Missouri School of Journalism, as well as the university’s Honors College. He credits Missouri faculty for instilling in him a love and tremendous respect for the media’s influence. And for his high school teacher, Mrs. Moyles, for encouraging him to pursue journalism.
For Mark, a work day goes from good to truly great when he can teach viewers something new. Let’s face it, our modern lives can get complex. Mark hopes his stories make the world a little more understandable.
Mark is most grateful for family, his supportive parents and brothers, loving fiancé, Sally, and smartest West Highland White Terrier in the world, Pippa, who both make coming home the best part of every day.
