Mark Menard made his way to New Orleans by way of a south Louisiana childhood in Morgan City and a formative stint in Thibodaux where he earned a degree in journalism from Nicholls State University. He started at WWL in 2003 as a twiddler of knobs and answerer of phones, but worked his way through the ranks to become a deliverer of sports and now toils as a chronicler of news.
Formerly the weekday afternoon sports anchor for WWL and a member of the Sports Talk team with Bobby Hebert and Kristian Garic, as well as an integral part of WWL's gameday coverage of the New Orleans Saints, Mark now works in a more global capacity for WWL's parent company Audacy and its central news team.
In his new role, Mark provides a robust array of digital content for not just WWL.com, but Audacy's vast array of other fine radio stations all over the United States. Still an unabashed Saints and Pelicans fan, an amateur but accomplished pop music historian, and a cultured enthusiast of "nerd stuff," Mark aspires to one day rise to a level of importance that affords him many leather-bound books and a home that smells of rich mahogany.
