The youngest of four, Mark (aka Blackers) is a Merseyside lad born and bred, who went to College and Uni. He’s been in Cheshire for over 15 years, so feels well and truly that the community is now in his blood! In that time he’s worked at the Beeb and commercial radio in various guises, from reading travel news to presenting – even keeping one station on the air using his hand whilst broadcasting … don’t ask!)
Mark is Deputy Station Manager, “taking care of business” when necessary, the technical aspects, helping out on various roadshows and events and filling in for other presenters when they go AWOL. He’s a big fan of 80s music and, away from the station, he’s a resident DJ at The Berkeley, in Wigan. Blackers loves to socialise, meet new people and catch up with family and friends.
Mark voices some of our station adverts you’ll hear throughout the day, he’s also the voice of the Canalside What’s On Guide – do you have an event for him? E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with details of your event and you could be featured on air soon!
