Mark Seelig

markseelig20100908 kcbs 0152r1 Mark SeeligMark Seelig was born and raised in the Bay Area…having grown up listening to local radio, including KFRC, KCBS, and KRQR.   He realized at an early age that he wanted to make radio a career, so he set off to college to make it happen.

Twenty-five years, and 3 radio stations later…he’s finally back home doing something that he hardly considers work.

Mark says the best part of news radio is that everyday is guaranteed to be different.  He is happiest when he’s reporting out in the field, meeting people, and digging for stories.
