Born and raised in Northeast Ohio, Martin Dzurenko got his start in broadcasting during his freshman year at Youngstown State University with WNCD, a classic rock station in Youngstown, Ohio. He went on to work as a DJ and board operator for WHTX/The Valley Sports Network. Dzurenko had an internship with WKBN producing sports before moving on to freelance work on high school, college, and professional sporting events during his collegiate career.

After graduation, Dzurenko worked for WFMJ, an NBC affiliate in Youngstown, before moving on to work for Shure Shot Satellite Transmission in Ohio, then at Gulflink Communications in Texas. In his role for both latter companies, he served as the Engineer in Charge of mobile satellite/production trucks, which gave him the opportunity to travel the country working live news and sporting events for various networks such as CNN, Fox, ABC, NBC, BBC, ESPN, and others. Dzurenko later moved to Atlanta, Georgia, to work for CBS affiliate WGCL, where he ran the satellite and microwave trucks. An opportunity beckoned him back to the Lone Star State, where he returned to work for KTVT performing maintenance and operating satellite uplinks for KTVT, CBS Newspath, and other CBS affiliates. He later joined Univision Dallas as a maintenance engineer, where he worked on live productions, maintained and rebuilt live remote broadcast trucks, as well as helped convert the station to High Definition.

Dzurenko joined UNT's Media Arts Department in 2014, where he enjoys working with students who share their creativity and express an eagerness to learn different aspects of the ever-evolving world of media arts.
