Today Skip traveled to the KTVB Studios to get an interview with KTVB news anchor Mark Johnson. Mark and Skip’s relationship goes back about 30 years. Skip was the head coach of Boise State when Mark stepped in as the Sports Director for KTVB.
After spending 5 years between 1983 and 1988 at KTVB, Mark traveled to WISN-TV in Milwaukee where he continued his award winning style of sports broadcasting, winning the State’s top Sports Story in 1990 and 1991.
He left Milwaukee in 1995 for WTAE-TV in Pittsburgh where he covered the Steelers in the 1996 Super Bowl while anchoring the Nightly Sports. But in the Spring of ’96 Mark was given the opportunity to return to his favorite place on earth and was KTVB’s Sports Director until December 2003 when he was promoted to the station’s main anchor.
