April 29, 2000.  

Every year on this date, I take a moment to remember a man that inspired me tremendously.

I can't believe it's been 14 years since we lost 'The Voice'.

Mark was not only the 'voice' of KFI, he was also the "KFI Traffic Center"...I remember his traffic reports well, I always felt like he was doing a traffic report just for me.  I know other listeners felt that way as well.

We have a new voice guy now for KFI, and he's very, very good.  But I really miss Mark's top of the hour version of "KFI Los Angeles"

Mark Denis taught me so much, not only about radio, but about being a good person in life and simply just living your best life every single day no matter what gets thrown at you.  I miss the 'comfy chair' where I'd sit while he finished up a traffic report, waiting for his sage advice on a situation.

Not a day goes by that I don't think of him and ask myself WWMDD? "What Would Mark Denis Do?"  In any situation, asking myself that question gives me instant clarity.

I am thankful for having known him.
