Darlene Sorendo of Liverpool had a cute story that wins her the room (and more!):
"That Voice" is Mark Wainwright's nickname in the radio business, for good reason. He has spent nearly three decades as a morning radio personality, disc jockey, and talk show host at stations throughout the United States. He has been on the air in Baltimore (his home town), Dallas, Hartford, Philadelphia, and numerous other cities. A full list of his radio credits would include some of the most famous call letters in broadcasting. His voice and delivery have been in demand for countless radio and TV commercials and voiceover projects...Mark Wainwright joined the WSYR family in early 2013, when he became a frequent substitute host filling in for the legendary Joe Galuski. Mark also continued as a morning drive fill-in host at three other prominent iHeartMedia stations: WRVA, Richmond; WHAM, Rochester; and WGY, Albany. He became the full time 570/WSYR morning host shortly after Joe Galuski passed away in 2015, and since then, Mark has become an even more familiar voice to Central New York listeners, and he has continued developing great relationships with the 570/WSYR staff and clients. Advertisers have grown especially fond of Mark's unconventional approach to doing live commercials...Mark Wainwright is a graduate of the Baltimore Polytechnic Institute and Carnegie Mellon University, and he holds an honors MBA in Finance from the University of Connecticut. He and his wife Karen, a CPA, also continue running their own investment management firm, albeit greatly downsized since Mark arrived in Syracuse...Mark and Karen have been residents of Manlius since July of 2015, and they keep a second home in Ballston Spa, Saratoga County.
