About Markley, Van Camp, & Robbins
Markley Van Camp, and Robbins dismantle the ‘talk radio’ illusion with a brand new show on 850 WFTL.
Jamie Markley is about 20 years older and has 20 times less hair than his co-host. The age brings experience, while the hair loss is just a symptom of being a former program director. A Midwesterner and family man, the former rock DJ will dazzle you with his wit and uncanny ability to remember the length of nearly every 1980s rock song. Seriously, test him! And he’s a massive Dallas Cowboys fan, of which he has no problem constantly reminding you in the off-chance you think he’s an America-hating communist.
David Van Camp
David van Camp is a Texan, but we don’t hold that against him. The hipster millennial look, though…absolutely. DVC conveys a no-bull attitude, but then hits you with a curveball joke and a poor man’s Lindsay Graham imitation that makes you wonder what he would have become if his high school football coach didn’t repeatedly tell him to “Sack up, Nancy.” The (last) Houston Texans fan is also a former news director who somehow made it out of Mexico (Missouri) alive, even if a little less sober.
Scott Robbins has been on top in every format he’s worked…Top 40, Rock,
Classic Hits, and News/Talk. Unlike most Radio hosts he has spent his entire career in Peoria.
Scott was enjoying great success hosting the Robbins & Markley show in 2015, when back to back heart attacks left him clinging to life for the better part of 6 weeks and in the hospital for 6 months. The doctors didn’t know if he’d make it out of the hospital, let alone ever get behind a microphone again. Many have called him a walking miracle.
These days Scott focuses on healthy living. He lives in Peoria with his grand-dog Sydney, 3 grand-cats Camden, Effie, and Wrigley, and now 2 lizards (best grandpa ever). Scott is an avid baseball fan, go Cubs and Royals. He also does fantasy baseball in a 20 team league and is well-versed in the world of power tumbling as of late. And you can never forget about music...that’s where this all began.
Scott is best known for his lack of filter and sarcastic humor. He fondly recalls some of his most memorable moments as seeing Michael Jordan naked (true story). Attending 5 NKOTB concerts with his awesome daughter and the day his daughter chose nursing over radio. Scott is the oldest member of the show. He was born in 1960 and remembers life before cable TV (and running water).
