Mark McKay

Born in Philadelphia, raised in Cherry Hill, NJ, radio was an accident! While attending Arizona State University as a Finance major, Mark became interested in broadcasting through 2 fraternity brothers who were broadcasting majors. He began working at the campus radio station, KASR-AM, after changing majors to… HISTORY, which makes him a great Jeopardy player!

He began working in the Promotions Dept. at KMLE-FM/ Phoenix in 1993, eventually getting promoted to part-time on-air work in 1996. By 1997, Mark was made a full-time member of “Camel Country 108’s” Country Music Association and Academy of Country Music nominated air staff, working primarily overnights
and hosting KMLE’s Saturday night request show, “Saturday Night at the Oasis.”

In March 1999, he accepted the Afternoon Drive position at WGH-FM/Norfolk, where he’s been since. In 2012, he was named Program Director of The Eagle, as well.

Married Sept. 16, 2000 to Christi, whom he met while working at KMLE. She’s the smart one—a practicing attorney in Virginia Beach, VA. Mark and Christi reside in Virginia Beach with their black lab, Lily.

Hobbies include music (how fortunate!) movies and history…

Inside the mind of Mark…

Miranda Lambert Takes Matters Into Her Own Hands

Miranda Lambert is not one to mess with, and she certainly doesn’t need any help from security handling her business. When one concert goer got too drunk and rowdy at a recent Pistol Annies show, Miranda took it upon herself to remove the girl from the show!
