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.

This TV Anchor Is Not Happy With Complaining Viewers [VIDEO]

When local meteorologist's Jill Reale and Samantha Wessling tell me that the Mohawk Valley is going to be hit hard with storms, I listen. Sure it bugs me when the warnings pop up during 'Judge Judy' but still, I pay attention. Recently a violent storm broke out in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, and when KSFY-TV weather anchor Shawn Cable broke into prime time programming to warn viewers to take cover as a tornado had been spotted on the ground, viewers called in and complained.

This Sophomore at a Texas High School Is Actually 31 Years-Old [VIDEO]

I cant think of how many time I let someone spin the Lite 98.7 jackpot machine only to discover that they are only 14 years old. You must be at least 18 to play. Kids are looking much older these days, so I can see how a 31 year-old could fit in with high school students.

Watch This Teacher Grab a Kindergarten Student By The Face Causing Her Suspension [VIDEO]

I would go nuts on this teacher if this happened to my 5 year-old son who also is in kindergarten. I recall having trouble with a teacher who put her hands on me, several times, while I was in Elementary school. I feel the same way today as I did back then. Except for breaking up a fight, it's uncalled for and should result in termination.
