Mark Oristano Newsroom - Profile and News Archive
Mark Oristano has been a professional writer/journalist since the age of 16. He grew up in suburban New York and moved to Texas in 1970 to attend Texas Christian University. A major in Mass Communications, Mark was hired by WFAA-TV in 1973 as a sports reporter, the start of a 30-year career covering the NFL and professional sports.
Mark has worked with notable broadcasters including Verne Lundquist and Oprah Winfrey. He has covered Super Bowls and other major sports events throughout his career. He was part of Ron Chapman’s legendary morning show on KVIL-FM in Dallas for nearly 20 years.
In 1997, Mark began volunteering at Children’s Medical Center in Dallas, working in the day surgery recovery room. (Or, the Post-Anesthesia Care Unit, if you like hospital talk.) It was at Children’s that Mark got to know Kris Guleserian, first to discuss baseball, and later, to learn about the physiology, biology, and mystery of the human heart.
That friendship led to a joint book project, SURGEON’S STORY, about Kris’ life and career.
