Host Mark Bedor

Mark Bedor has been fascinated with the American West since he first saw the movie How The West Was Won as young boy.

After a career as a reporter, anchor, writer and producer in local television news, Mark combined his passion for the West with his television story-telling skills to create Today’s Wild West. A longtime freelance magazine writer-photographer, his articles and photographs of the American West have been published in dozens of magazines, including Cowboys & Indians, American Lifestyle, Northwest Travel, and many others. Plus, he’s the author of two coffee table Western photography books: Great Ranches of Today’s Wild West; and Great Rides of Today’s Wild West, both from Skyhorse Publishing of New York. A committed Christian, Mark is an avid horseman, sings and plays guitar, and is either writing about his last adventure, or planning his next one.
