Marc Germain

 

Known as the beloved Southern California radio icon “Mr. KABC”, or “Mr. K” for short, Marc began his broadcasting career at twelve during the pre-internet days of citizen band radio. Marc was famously known as King Cobra on channel 19 until puberty kicked in, his voice changed, and he discovered girls.

marcGermain was raised in the San Fernando Valley in Southern California. He attended California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo before graduating in 1989 from the University of California at Santa Barbara with a degree in Political Science.

His wife, Ann, known on the air as “Mrs. Mister K," hails from Long Island, New York. They met while both worked at 640 KFI in Los Angeles. In fact, it was Ann who first hired Marc! The Germain’s have two children, a son and daughter, and make their home in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Marc has worked in every aspect of the radio business starting as a weekend board operator and working his way up to screener and then producer for Stephanie Miller, Bill Press, former LAPD chief Daryl Gates, John & Ken and Bill Handel among many others. Marc was even briefly Program Director of KFI while hosting his own show.

Marc Germain signed with 790 KABC in Los Angeles and by March of 2000 was hosting his top rated “Ask Mr. KABC Show.”  In 2007 Germain moved to afternoon drive at KTLK and in 2008 launched Talk Radio One, a nightly webcast with a large and loyal following.

In February 2010 Marc joined Red Eye Radio as the regular Saturday night / Sunday morning host.

In addition to current events and everyday questions-- just about anything is fair game-- Marc is passionate about cars, motorcycles, astronomy and computer technology. Marc has appeared on CNN, Fox News, and was profiled in The New York Times.

His more notable interviews include the very last interview of Wolfman Jack, and one of the last interviews with Milton Berle.  From entertainment mogul Merv Griffin to Jack “Dr. Death” Kevorkian, Marc’s eclectic interests make him a perfect fit for Red Eye Radio.
