Mark Richards

I'm a Buffalo native and a Buffalo Bills / Buffalo Sabres fan. When I'm not watching the Bills or Sabres on TV with a plate of homemade Buffalo wings, I'll be watching "Judge Judy" or working on my latest do-it-yourself project at my home in North Utica. There are many reasons why you should start your day the Lite way with me Mark Richards. You'll hear the best variety of lite favorites and you'll get the most music in the morning. You never have to wait very long for the day's weather forecast. We provide information updates every half-hour. You can win great prizes with Mindbender Trivia, at approximately 6:50 AM. I'll run down the birthday list every morning at 7:40 AM. We'll kick off the No Repeat Workday every morning at 8 AM with the 80s at 8 and the commercial-free music hour will start about 8:50 AM. During the winter, we'll have school delays and closings on-air and online. I promise, no "blue humor" you'd be embarrassed to explain to your kids! And now, my most recent blogs for you to enjoy.
