Cam Marston

Host, Keepin' It Real

Cam Marston is the self-described genius behind the twice Fridays Keepin’ It Real, now in its fourth year on Alabama Public Radio. Described as “observations of the world as it goes on around me,” Cam’s commentaries have gained a loyal following on APR. A native of Mobile, Cam and his wife are the proud parents of three great children out of a total of four with one child rotating out of the “good” category at any given moment. His wife, Lisa, is a high school volleyball coach.
