Marc has spent virtually his entire life in the Tri-State area, attending college at IU, and at various times hanging his hat in Montgomery, Clifton, Oakley, Mt. Lookout and Mason. After stints in Portland, OR and Greensboro, NC he got tired of the shipping costs for LaRosa's and Montgomery Inn and came home.
Amazon has hosted radio programs for over ten years, with a timely mix of politics, local issues, sports and entertainment. His 1999 "Tournament of Babes" is still considered one of this city's cultural milestones, on par with the Mapplethorpe exhibit and the Uncle Al Show.
Marc's top accomplishments include winning the Sycamore Junior High 8th grade basketball Mr. Defense award, being the youngest kid ever suspended from his middle school and injuring Bill Cunningham playing racquetball. He enjoys movies (Fast Times at Ridgemont High, Gladiator, Wedding Crashers), TV (Survivor, Friday Night Lights, Modern Family) and music (27 Jimmy Buffett concerts at Riverbend, and counting). In fact, before he met his lovely wife, he held the career record for most women bummed out at a single concert (all of them).
Marc lives in Mason with his wife and two children, where he spends his weekends shuttling from soccer game to baseball game to basketball game, while occasionally wishing the games could be played in a bar.
Aurora, CO - Cherry Creek School District put a teacher on administrative leave on Tuesday after 9Wants To Know discovered a Twitter page containing half-naked photos of her and a claim of possessing marijuana on school grounds.
23-year old Carly McKinney, who was apparently fond of making references to drug use, suggested in one tweet that she was grading papers while stoned. In another, McKinney jokes, "Watching a drug bust go down in the parking lot. It's funny cuz I have weed in my car in the staff parking lot."
McKinney claimed @crunk_bear was a parody account she created with a friend. She denied using drugs while on school grounds, and blamed all controversial comments and photos on her friend who she alleges posted "without her knowledge and consent."
