Learn More The Breakfast Show

Mark has been presenting the morning show in English in Switzerland for longer than he cares to remember - although he can.

Starting in Bern in 1992, working for the English service for Swiss Radio International, Mark was one of the original team that started what was then World Radio Geneva in 1996, and then in 2013, he was part of a group of international investors which bought the station from the Swiss Broadcasting Corporation.

Now - years later - Mark is still on air every morning, waking up at 4am every day (including weekends as his body clock is now fixed into a routine). People keep asking him how he manages to be so chirpy every morning - he relies on gallons of coffee, all consumed before 6.30am.

You can join Mark every weekday from 6.30am for local news, chat and stories from around the world.
