SAN ANTONIO RADIO HALL OF FAME
At the age of 5, Mark Carrillo fell in love with Radio … a love affair that has never dimmed. After high school, Mark entered the RTF program at San Antonio College. Soon he was practicing his craft on closed circuit WSAC and on the college station, KSYM. In 1976, while still in college, Mark was hired by KTSA/KTFM to run the SAC Show and later to work as a newscaster.
By the time he got his next job at KISS/KMAC in 1978, Mark was living his dream as a disc jockey. He would go on to work at multiple San Antonio stations over the next 30 years … easily transitioning from Rock to Top 40, to Adult Contemporary, to Contemporary Hits Radio, to Country. He did mornings, afternoons and a great majority of the time, middays in the air-chair.
Mark also hosted the teen dance show, Jammin, on KENS TV in 1986, when he on-the-air at KSAQ… and San Antonio Steppin’ Out, a Country dance and video show, while he was doing middays at Y100.
Like many others, Mark was replaced in radio by automation…but in 2018 he was back on the air playing Hot AC on radio stations in Oklahoma and Arkansas. He also remained on the air through his work as voice-over talent. These days, he can be heard on TV and Radio from coast to coast, voicing over a hundred commercials every month and has never stopped being heard on commercials in San Antonio.
A native San Antonian, Mark is proud to have spent his entire broadcasting career right here in his hometown.
