About - Mark Jones
What to expect
Mark Jones hosts awards, sportsmen's dinners and fundraisers; they're his specialist subjects! He's been Master of Ceremonies at countless events around the world, from awards to conferences, 'live' TV programmes, fundraisers, concerts, festivals and more. In just one 12 month period, Mark appeared in Brunei, made three trips (coast to coast) across the USA, plus trips to host events in Malaysia, Portugal (twice), Germany (twice), Switzerland (twice) and Hungary. This meant 41 flights and over 123,000 miles. In addition, he continued hosting events around the UK. Mark has been Master of Ceremonies for Manchester United’s Player-of-the-Year awards every year since 2002. He’s been live MC for Sky Sports' Masters Football since 2001, hosting their televised tournaments in the UK, plus Dubai, Kuala Lumpur, Brunei and Macau (China), presenting the live TV interviews too. Mark also covered Rugby League and cricket, featuring on Channel 4 and Sky Sports on ODIs, Test Matches and County games where he conducted all the televised interviews with Sir Ian Botham, David Gower, David 'Bumble' Lloyd, Michael Holding and the late, great Richie Benaud. In 2001, Mark was much too close (just four blocks away) from New York's Twin Towers during the 9/11 terrorist attacks. He spent the rest of that day as a Salvation Army volunteer helping Emergency Services; for the rest of the week, he reported ‘live’ from Ground Zero for UK radio. He spread his experienced wings (and tonsils) to the USA, featuring on radio stations WEFT and Q-96 in Champaign, Illinois, where he also hosted the American Heart Association's black-tie 2010/11 fundraising dinners. Mark has unrivalled experience as one of the UK's top radio presenters. He made his name at Liverpool's Radio City during their illustrious heyday, and is a Sony® award-winner for hosting Michael Jackson's (125,000+) 'Biggest Solo Concert in History'. Mark Jones has also written and published several books.
