Forty year radio and television veteran, Marc Bernier, is often heard to say talking to people is the greatest job he's ever had. He is the host of The Marc Bernier Show, which airs weekdays from 3-6 p.m. on 93.5FM/1150AM WNDB Daytona Beach, Florida.
"We get the newsmakers other shows can't get, because we treat them fairly. We deal with matters that affect people's lives", says Bernier. Now in his 24th year at WNDB, the show has been frequented by guests nationwide. From the top leaders on Capitol Hill, to current and former White House officials, the opinion makers of the country know Marc Bernier will ask the questions that need to be asked. The length of Bernier's reign at WNDB combined with his witty personality and list of guest appearances have landed him on Talkers Magazine'stop 100 most important talkshow hosts the last 14 straight years. "I'm honored that Talkers would recognize the hard work that goes into our show each day", says Bernier. When not discussing political and social issues, Marc prides himself on his local focus which deals with city, county, and state-wide issues. "Dealing with an area like central Florida, it is imperative that residents have a place where they can air their feelings on local happenings", he adds. "I'm happy to host a forum for that". From October 1999 to December 2008 Marc did double duty performing a mid-day talk show on WFHG FM-AM in Bristol Virginia-Tennessee.
