Mark Arehart

Arts Reporter/Host

Mark Arehart joined the award-winning WKSU news team as its arts/culture reporter in 2017. Before coming to Northeast Ohio, Arehart hosted Morning Edition and covered the arts scene for Delaware Public Media. He previously worked for KNKX in Seattle, Kansas Public Radio, and KYUK in Bethel, Alaska.  

His reporting has taken him everywhere from remote islands in the Bering Sea to the tops of skyscrapers overlooking Puget Sound. Arehart has been featured on NPR and the Alaska Public Radio Network. 

Equal parts Nebraskan/Kansan and a University of Kansas graduate, he's a diehard college basketball fan. He loves reading crime fiction and fantasy, as well as enjoying movies with subtitles, explosions, or both. 

He lives in Akron's Highland Square neighborhood and as a former morning drive-time host, you'll likely find him out walking his dog, Otis, well before sunrise.

Feel free to tweet at him, find him on Instagram, or send him an email.
