Mark Blackman

The youngest of four, Mark (aka Blackers) is a Merseyside lad born and bred, who went to College in Widnes and Uni in Chester! He’s been working in radio for over 20 years now, so feels well and truly that the industry is now in his blood! In that time he’s worked at the BBC and Commercial Radio in various guises, from reading travel news to presenting and producing shows – even keeping one station on the air using his hand whilst broadcasting … (don’t ask!)

Mark is also our Deputy Station Director and Head of Music, “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 DJ out and about across the North West and North Wales. Blackers loves to socialise, meet new people and catch up with family and friends.

FACT: Mark's been on various gameshows including The Chase, Two Tribes and even Dale's Supermarket Sweep!
