Dave Malarkey has been the voice of Butler County radio for over three decades. He began his career as a news reporter on WISR and since that time, Dave has given Butler County residents their morning wake-up call of news, sports, weather and community information every weekday beginning at 6 AM.
In 2000, Dave gave a voice to Butler County when he began as host of “It’s Your Turn,” the county’s only live, call-in talk show. His understanding of local issues, people and events made him a natural choice to open up the talk lines and provide an outlet for citizens to discuss important topics of the day.
His dedication behind the microphone is not surpassed by his commitment to the community he serves. Dave has been active in a variety of local arts and theater groups, including the Musical Theater Guild, Butler Little Theater and the Associated Artists. Known for his keen appreciation of all things Irish, Dave is a friend to many local organizations and residents.
