Born in Melbourne, Australia with grandparents initially from Manchester, England, a young Mark A. Bishop always knew he was destined to make a difference. His chosen career as a Radio & T.V. broadcaster/presenter, have given him a strong insight into people.
The Aussie with a difference
My media experience was gleaned from Radio and Television stations throughout Australia over many years. Australia is a beautiful and exciting country and I am very fortunate to have lived most of it throughout my media and business career.
You have to earn your stripes so to speak. I started out as young announcer which sure didn’t pay much, but when you love what you do, you always find a way to more than survive. After working my way from country to major city stations with experience in all formats of music and talk, I ventured into television and again utilizing my diverse talents hosted current affairs, variety, sport and anything they threw at you including major news anchoring and reporting.
They often say, ‘is there any life after media’?
I have been very fortunate to have had a very successful (2nd) career in resort real estate and the vacation ownership industry, mixed use real estate land and housing sub divisions and residential estates. With my wife & partner Nancy, we formed our company that has now consulted on and produced fractional real estate projects in North America, Mexico, Vanuatu, New Zealand and Phillip Island in Victoria Australia.
I enjoy helping others whenever I can and have now returned to Tucson to be near family. I’m excited to be back “on air on the Voice KVOI 1030 AM – Weekdays 10am – 12pm. I hope that you will join us!
