MASTER OF CEREMONIES - UK and worldwide.
Experienced - Professional - Reliable.
Mark Jones happily admits hosting awards, conferences and sportsmens dinners are his specialist subjects; it's where he's happiest! He's compèred countless events around the world, from awards, business summits, live TV programmes, to concerts, festivals and many, many more. Mark even hosted a successful sportsmens-dinners-for-the-troops tour across war-torn Kosovo with England's World Cup winners; he's even hosted the world-renowned dog show, Crufts at the NEC arena in Birmingham!
Mark has fronted Manchester United's Player-of-the-Year awards since 2002, (amongst others!) He's been Sky Sports' Masters Football MC since 2001, hosting their UK tournaments, plus Dubai, Kuala Lumpur, Brunei and Macau, China. He also presented all the live TV interviews. Mark has also covered Rugby League and cricket too, featuring on Channel 4 and Sky Sports on the ODI Internationals, Test Matches and County games around the UK, where he also presented all the televised interviews with Sir Ian Botham, David Gower, David 'Bumble' Lloyd, Michael Holding and the late, great Richie Benaud.
In 2001, Mark found himself close (much, much too close) to the Twin Towers in New York City during the 9/11 terrorist attacks. He spent the rest of the day as a Salvation Army volunteer helping Emergency Services. For the rest of that week, he also reported live from Ground Zero exclusively for UK radio.
Mark Jones has unrivalled experience as one of the UK's top radio presenters. He started at Liverpool's Radio City during their illustrious heyday, becoming an award-winner, receiving a 'Sony' for his hosting Michael Jackson's Aintree racecourse concert, (the biggest solo concert in history) where he entertained a crowd of over 125,000. He's also hosted Paul McCartney concerts, and has been the main stage host (annually over 55,000) of the renowned Mathew Street Music Festival. He's covered Manchester United's, Glasgow Celtic's and Liverpool's pre-season American tours for UK radio.
Mark regularly won 'Presenter of the month', and various accolades from the Variety Club of Great Britain, where Mark is a Barker.
After several successful years at regional radio station Century (now Smooth FM), Mark returned to host a daily UK-networked programme on Magic (he was regularly heard on Manchesters Magic 1152 -formerly Piccadilly Radio- too).
He even spread his experienced wings (and tonsils) overseas, 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.
Not limiting his talents to radio, Mark has written and published several books, including the best-selling Mark Jones Birthday Book, which was the definitive UK Radio reference book.
