Mark Lambert is one of four full-time staff members of the university's 100,000 watt radio station, KNTU-FM. He's been helping lead the station since February 2000. Drawing on decades of experience in broadcastiMark Lambert broadcasting with a student from the 2014 Denton Arts & Jazz and newspaper work, Lambert helps train the students who work in the professional environment which KNTU strives to maintain. He has worked for newspapers as writer and photographer; in radio as DJ, production director, news writer, newscaster, and news director; in network radio as correspondent, editor, producer, writer, and anchorman; and in cable TV as news gatherer, writer, and editor.

In 2022, KNTU became two stations -- 88.1 indie (alternative rock) on the terrestrial signal (what you get in your car radio and home stereo) and the continuing jazz programming on (which will soon be back in the airwaves as FM 88.1 HD2). Lambert continues overseeing the jazz programming to provide the latest music releases to dedicated jazz listeners. He oversees the tracking numbers supplied to the national jazz chart of new releases maintained by JazzWeek and the music promoters continue supplying new music to KNTU since the station has NOT abandoned the format, but simply moved it to a new delivery platform.

Lambert has an MA in Media Industry and Critical Studies from UNT's Department of Media Arts and a BA in Broadcast Communication from UTA. He has won two New York Radio and Television Gold Medals and a Dallas Advertising League Gold TOP Award.
