What is Free Talk Live? What’s on your mind? Unlike those right-wing or left-liberal extremist shows, Free Talk Live is talk radio that ANYONE can take control of. Yes, even you. Free Talk Live is the next generation of issues oriented talk. What is the meaning of freedom? This show is about Liberty with a capital L.

Mark was born and raised in the Tampa Bay area of Florida. He has been working in radio since 1999 and won an Addy award in 2002 for his work. Mark has received numerous sales awards in advertising sales and was the youngest general manager of a radio station in the Tampa Bay Area. He is an avid reader, breeds tropical fish, loves classic automobiles, enjoys mountain climbing and amuses himself with his eclectic knowledge of semi-useless information. A Free Market Capitalist, Mark believes that a return to a Constitutional government is the only thing that will save the United States. He takes a great interest in American history, the Founding Fathers, and especially Thomas Jefferson. Mark is married and lives with his lovely wife, infant son Jack, and big, fat, mean cat, Senior Grouchy Pants. Sometimes he can be found singing karaoke in and about Keene, NH.

Born and raised in Sarasota, FL, Ian has been working in radio since he was 17.
