Mark Starling has a lengthy background in News/Talk radio, mornings will be nothing new for him…he started his radio career doing mornings for 7 years at WLKF in Lakeland, Florida. Mark has stops in Ithaca, NY, Rochester, NY, Harrisonburg, Va, and Tampa, Florida. Starling's most recent stop was with News 96.5FM in Orlando where he served as the PM Drive anchor for Orlando's Evening News for the last 18 months. Mark says of his move to Asheville: Making the jump to the Asheville market is exactly the kind of move I have been after for several reasons. Not only is it the chance to get back to doing mornings but the chance to really create a hyper- local morning show concentrating on the news and information the community is really looking for. It's an adventure I can't wait to get started on."
