Mark Ribbins: Weekdays 10AM-2PM
In my high school days, I used to make jazz mixtapes and play them in my car, doing song intros as I drove. I guess playing DJ back then was getting me prepped for The Wave. Who knew? After high school, I studied mass media communications at Cleveland State while working at my family's christian book store. That led to my first radio gigs playing gospel music at WSUM and WDMT, and later, WRDZ. Thanks to a recommendation from my friend Dan Steinberg (who worked here at the time), I landed at The Wave in the early 90s, and have pretty much been around ever since. It's a pleasure to be back to bringing you your smooth favorites.
When I’m not in the studio or at one of our events, you can often find me doing ministry work at Evening Star Church in the Glenville area. My favorite times are spent hanging out with my lovely wife Celeste (whom I saw for the first time at a Wave concert years ago), and our daughter Julia. I’m a Cleveland native, and I really believe this is one of the greatest places in the world to live. Our area has a remarkable amount to offer, and a ton of potential for the future. As much as I love to travel, I’m always glad to come home to the shores of Lake Erie.
