Jason Marck

Morning Shift Producer

Jason produces segments and pieces together all the elements to execute The Morning Shift program. He is also the regular fill-in host when Tony Sarabia’s away.

Jason spent five years on the air and helping to run his college station KJHK at the University of Kansas. After that he spent seven years as a DJ and production director at KLZR, one of the earliest and most influential commercial Alternative stations in the country. From there it was on to Fox Sports Radio in Los Angeles, producing and directing The Tony Bruno Show which aired on over 150 stations coast-to-coast.

In 2004, he was finally back home in Chicago and working for WBEZ. Jason has earned multiple awards for writing and production from the Kansas Association of Broadcasters, several awards for work here at WBEZ from the Chicago Headline Club, and a James Beard Foundation award.

He has a wife and two young sons, is an avid photographer, drummer, lover of the Chicago Cubs, and a (tie)dyed-in-the-wool Deadhead.
