A fixture in the Nashville sports scene for more than two decades, Mark Howard brings a passion to covering middle Tennessee sports each morning. A long-time television sportscaster in Nashville and now as one of the hosts for The Wake Up Zone, 104-5 The Zone’s award-winning morning sports talk show, Mark is known for his clever writing and enthusiastic delivery. When you listen to him, it’s easy to see why some say he must wear out his suits from the inside out!

Kevin Ingram keeps you up-to-date on the morning’s top stories as you make your way to work on 104-5 The Zone.

It’s building on what succeeded, rather than attempting to…

B6B: MOVIE REVIEW: Richard Jewell

By JASON MARTIN (@JMartZone – December 12, 2019) Stories told about the so-called “everyman” resonate with us because we know people in our own lives that reflect some, if not most, of the characteristics of the pro… or sometimes the antagonists portrayed. There’s a relationship to a neighbor or someone at church or school or…
