Some changes going on here at WDAZ TV. Mark Prather, the Vice President of Broadcasting and General Manager of WDAY / WDAZ retired Friday. Mark started at WDAY in July of 1990. He came to WDAZ from Columbus Georgia. While he seemed to fly under the radar - he lead us through many major news events and upgrades at WDAZ. Adding a satellite truck, upgrades in cameras and editing equipment, expanding our coverage area and very soon the transition to HD. We've seen major growth over Mark's 23 years

Forum Communications Company, Bill Marcil Sr. said, "you've got a great team here, but it still provides leadership. A lot of people don't recognize we put out a new product at least once a day and in order to accomplish that at the level we enjoy here, it takes teamwork and it takes a leader and Mark has provided that leadership the last 23 years."

We all wish Mark and Jane the best, and enjoy the warm beaches of Florida.
