Mark:

Mark Baggio has been with WiLD 94.1 since July of 2013! He grew up in Chicago and loves everything about that beautiful city!

From the very beginning Mark was obsessed with music. His mother played the piano and was always singing around the house and in the car. His mom was a huge fan of listening to the radio and that was stamped into Mark's brain at a young age. It was at that point Mark grew a passion for radio.

As he got older his love for music only got stronger. He played many instruments including the flute, drums, trumpet, guitar, and was a club dj at some of the biggest clubs in and around downtown Chicago. He was also the head DJ for the Chicago Fire, Chicago's MLS soccer team! There was a point when Mark was hoping to be a baseball player as he played for 13 years and was quite talented but an elbow injury prevented his career from progressing. Once that set in he decided to go to school for TV/RADIO.

After graduating from the Illinois Center for Broadcasting Mark began his full-time radio career making stops in Decatur, IL, Chicago, IL, and finally here in Tampa! He's been involved with many aspects of the radio field and even does some light consulting work on the side. You'll most likely catch Mark in downtown St. Pete, the beach, or sitting at his pool with an ice cold Miller Lite!
