Mark has been MC at 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 all their televised tournaments across the UK, plus those in Dubai, Kuala Lumpur, Brunei and Macau (China), presenting all the live TV interviews too. He’s also covered Rugby League and cricket, featuring on Channel 4 and Sky Sports on their ODIs, Test Matches and County games around the UK, where he conducted all the televised interviews with Sir Ian Botham, David Gower, David 'Bumble' Lloyd, Michael Holding and the late, great Richie Benaud.

Mark Jones 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, became an award-winner (with a Sony®) for his hosting Michael Jackson’s 'Biggest Solo Concert in history', where he entertained the crowd of over 125,000 onstage all day. Often voted ‘Presenter of the month', he’s also received many accolades from the Variety Club of Great Britain, where he is a long-standing Barker.

Mark also covered Manchester United, Glasgow Celtic & Liverpool FC’s pre-season American tours for UK radio. After several successful years broadcasting on the two huge Century FM networks (now Smooth FM), Mark returned to host a daily UK-networked programme on Magic. He's been regularly heard on Manchester’s Magic 1152 (formerly Piccadilly Radio). He even spread his experienced wings (and tonsils) over the Atlantic, featuring on American radio stations WEFT and Q-96 in Champaign, Illinois, where he also hosted the American Heart Association's black-tie fundraising dinners in 2010 and 2011, helping to raise record-breaking amounts in the auctions.

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. Not limiting his talents to radio and hosting live events, Mark has written and published several books, including the best-selling ‘Mark Jones’ Birthday Book’, which became the definitive UK Radio reference book.
