Mark Wilson, a native of Great Falls, has a deep-rooted connection to the world of country music. His early exposure came through his father, who was a morning radio host on KMON AM. Mark's childhood home was filled with the sounds of his dad's band practicing for their weekend gigs. One of the pivotal moments in Mark's life was attending the State Fair in Great Falls in 1971. His father served as the emcee for all the concerts, granting Mark the opportunity to enjoy front-row seats for performances by artists like Anne Murray, Glen Campbell, and the Carpenters. After high school, Mark embarked on his own journey in radio. He initiated his career at KMON Great Falls and transitioned to KYSS-FM in Missoula during his college years. His dedication to the radio industry led him to work for KGVO in Missoula and later KYSN-FM in East Wenatchee, Washington. In March 1988, Mark Wilson moved to Billings when Citadel Communications acquired the 102.9 FM and AM970 signals, launching the iconic Cat Country. Since then, he has been an integral part of the Cat Country team. Beyond his passion for radio, Mark enjoys his leisure time playing golf and racquetball, even though he admits that his skills in both sports are a work in progress.
