Mark Evans has been around Marquette Radio and TV since 1996! A native of Madison, Wisconsin – the U.P. has rubbed-off and become home! Aside from Mark and Walt in the Morning, Mark is also mediaBrew Communications Market Manager, which means he gets bombarded with questions and requests pretty much all day long by the people he works with!!. (Some of those questions actually have merit every once in a while!)
When not talking into a mic in a padded room with Walt, Mark loves to cook, Golf, enjoy the U.P.’s beauty and spend time with his two kids, wife Dawn and stepson! Mark has won several statewide awards for Commercial Production, Sports Play-by-Play and for Mark and Walt in The Morning!! Outside of mediaBrew, Mark is also in his 6th season of calling the Northern Michigan/Michigan Tech rivalry for TV6/Fox UP. Mark also is the voice of Negaunee Miners Football on Sunny 101.9!
A born and bred Yooper from Chassell, Michigan Walt Lindala is a genuine information junkie. He lives and works here and has made it his life’s work to report on the day to day events that shape our community. Walt covered news and public affairs in Upper Michigan since 1987 starting on the campus of Northern Michigan University at Public Radio 90, WNMU-FM where he hosted the morning news program for nearly a decade.
He joined the Great Lakes Radio team in 1997 as Network News Director and over the years I’ve met and interviewed hundreds of the people who make our area such a great place to live. Along the way, it’s turned into an interesting and satisfying career and I’ve been lucky enough to have been recognized by the Michigan Association of Broadcasters over two dozen times for excellence in news reporting, event coverage, on-air and production work.
Now he holds the same roll as News Director and Morning Show Host under the new mediaBrew Communications name!
I truly do have a passion for this area and feel it’s my civic duty to give back to the community that supports our work here at Great Lakes Radio. As a result, I have served on boards and committees for both the City and County of Marquette, Northern Michigan University, Lake Superior Community Partnership, Tau Kappa Epsilon Fraternity, WUPX Student Radio, Marquette Area Blues Society, the Boy Scouts of America, United Way of Marquette County, The Beacon House and more.
I also believe that music and the arts enhance the experience of living in our community and in my spare time, I play guitar and sing in the Flat Broke Blues Band, a group I helped found in 1991.
