Hey there! Thank you for stumbling across my page. My name is Mark Anthony, and I am 23 years old. I have been working at Townsquare Media since I was a weird, fashionless, goofy 15-year-old. I am a morning show producer on Beach Radio AM 1160 & 1310 and News Anchor on 92.7 WOBM, 94.3 The Point, Beach Radio, and 105.7 The Hawk. I also host my own shows on weekend afternoons and nights on 92.7 WOBM and 94.3 The Point. Gosh, where do I start? The only reason why I am writing to you today is because some awesome people that will remain nameless.... actually no they won't. Huge shoutout to Justin Louis (WOBM Assistant Brand Manager) for answering a Facebook message from me which blossomed into an internship and one thing led to another, and now you hear my (sometimes nasally) voice on your radio! Another huge shoutout to Steve Ardolina (Brand Manager) for hiring me and putting up with me all these years! I have been listening to 92.7 WOBM since I was 8 or 9. I faintly remember passing the Shawn & Sue billboard driving into Lacey when I was a kid and running around the house with my brother singing the jingles (embarrassing right?). The station was a massive part of my life - and still is. I was told to be somewhat personal on this page so: I enjoy sushi, hanging with friends and family, being a nerd and playing video games, politics, writing, more sushi, coffee, Spongebob, and going to college. Speaking of college, I am senior at Kean University, earning my Bachelors degree in Journalism and Political Science. I will be attending law school in 2020! On a serious note, thank you for being a loyal listener to 92.7 WOBM, 94.3 The Point, Beach Radio, and 105.7 The Hawk! We appreciate it! One last thing, if you don't use the Oxford Comma, we're not friends. "If you work really hard, and you are kind, amazing things can happen." - Conan O'Brien
