Professional

Emerging onto the radio scene as an intern with Cumulus Broadcasting’s KRWP POWER 97.5 in Houston, Texas in 2002, Marcus still believes in paying dues.  

 After a brief career in football at the University of Houston, Marcus began to concentrate on education, graduating from the University Of Houston with a Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary studies as well as a Bachelor of Arts in Communications in the Spring of 2003. 

His current placement on Radio One's News 92FM as a Technical Producer and Sports Reporter authenticates his efficiency by maintaining multiple positions in radio and solidifies his trek to becoming a credible reporter.  Marcus has been described as an all around "people person" that has been in multiple radio formats, once holding the position of "#1 Night Show". Today, his attentiveness and familiarity with the everyday person, allows him to produce a quality newscast with breaking news, entertainment and exclusive interviews in the fast pace news world.    The craft of holding multiple duties started at Power 97.5 and was carried over to KRBE 104.1. Holding the positions of Promotions Assistant & Board Operator and receiving additional opportunities as a Production Director, Assistant to the Music Director, Imaging Director, KPTY's 104.9/93.3 Swing Jock and Night On- Air Personality. Resigning from all of those duties and taking a leap of faith at Christian station KROI Praise 92.1 as a syndicated morning show Producer, On-Air Personality and Production Director Marcus received the experience that developed him into an individual that can be described as  a person of convergence.

Now, Marcus is taking his same passion into the News/Sports world and is set to make an impact. “My experience has given me an ability to do the vast majority of jobs required in any newsroom. From writing and producing to reporting on air stories, my level of expertise should be valuable to any company seeking excellence.”
