Hi, I’m Mark Jennings. I’m host of The Big Drive Home. I’m also the station’s Brand Manager. That just means I’m here before and after my on-air shift and I don’t get the 4 hour workday I originally thought all radio people had. This is the only radio station I’ve ever worked at, over 30 years here which is pretty rare in this business. My country music career started with “Urban Cowboy”. I love country’s heritage acts and today’s amazing new stars. Outside of the radio station I like the gym, my boat and checking out all of our local eateries and establishments. Thanks for listening, I really appreciate it!
