Well, what can I say? I was born and raised in the heart of Deep East Texas, in San Augustine County. I was the only child of the two greatest parents of all time. I graduated from West Sabine High School in Pineland in 2012, and then graduated from Stephen F. Austin in Nacogdoches in 2015 with a B.A. in Mass Media, with an emphasis in Radio/TV Production. I started working part-time for the radio stations in Lufkin, doing odd-jobs here and there, just trying to get my feet wet in the radio industry. Then, BOOM! I went to work there full-time in October 2015. Now, you can hear me in the afternoons on “Cunningham’s Corner” from 2:00 PM - 7:00 PM on Q107. I’m just an East Texas guy trying to make my "Mark" on the world. I'm married to Jordan Cunningham, AKA "The Most Awesome Wife EVER"! I mean, come on, she’s willing to put up with me on a daily basis. Bonus points for her! Anyway, even though I'm on-air for the Classic Rock station, I have one of the most diverse tastes in music that you're going to find, anywhere. I like a little bit of everything, from Classic Rock, to Country, to Hip-Hop, to a little bit of everything else. How would I describe my life? AWESOME. I can definitely say that I'm blessed. Thanks for listening!
