Home town: New Castle, PA (about 50 miles north of Pittsburgh)
Favorite thing about Pittsburgh: How loyal and proud people are about their city
Mark was born in Germany on a U.S. Army base, speaks Russian and a bit of French, and traveled widely in Europe during a 15-year career reporting for the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. He is now university editor at RMU and teaches journalism and communication classes as an adjunct professor.
After many years of taking groups of international visitors on tours of the city, Mark decided to share his spiel in this podcast. He is very grateful to the hard-working RMU students who translated it into their own languages.
Mark firmly believes Pittsburgh is one of the most interesting, charming, vibrant, and beautiful cities in the USA. He hopes this tour will help convince you, too.
