Mark annually hosts Manchester United’s Player-of-the-Year awards, amongst others. He’s been MC for Sky Sports' Masters Football since 2001, hosting their televised tournaments across the UK, plus Dubai, Kuala Lumpur, Brunei and Macau, China. He presented the live TV interviews too.
In 2001, Mark was close (just four blocks away) from New York's Twin Towers during the 9/11 terror attacks. He spent the rest of the day as a Salvation Army volunteer helping the Emergency Services, and for the rest of the week, he also reported ‘live’ from Ground Zero for UK radio.
Mark Jones has unrivalled experience as one of the UK's top radio presenters, making his name at Liverpool's Radio City during their illustrious heyday, became an award-winner -with a Sony®- for hosting the 'Biggest Solo Concert In History' -Michael Jackson's Aintree racecourse concert- entertaing the crowd of over 125,000 all day. Mark was regularly voted ‘Presenter of the month' and received accolades from the Variety Club of GB, where he's a Barker. Mark spread his experienced wings (and tonsils) featuring on American radio stations WEFT and Q-96 in Champaign, Illinois, where he also hosted the American Heart Association's black-tie fundraisers, helping to raise record-breaking amounts in the auctions. Not limiting his talents to radio, Mark has written and published several books.

…They were a difficult crowd to please, you did an exceptional job! Well done! HRH Sophie, Countess of Wessex (at the official opening of Aquavale Leisure Complex, Aylesbury, Bucks.)
...we would like to thank you for a brilliant job last night, [hosting our golf day & awards 2015 at the Belfry] everyone thought you were the best MC we have ever had... Kathy McCracken, Admin. Manager, Road Surface Treatments Association
…You were a pleasure to work with and hopefully we will do it again soon. Alan Lambert, Carita Services, Potters Bar
...(2015) I thought Mark Jones was majestic in his handling and compèring the event. He kept everything moving in a most professional and competent manner; I can think of few other hosts who could have handled the event in such a professional way and with the provision of such good sound and lighting (which Mark also supplied). Many other super-expensive high-profile presenters would have stumbled over some of the Sri-Lankan pronunciations and protocols required. Mark did not."
...(2016) Thank you for making the BRISLA awards such a success again! Next year’s event is November 14th 2017. Please reserve the date.
Zimar Sivardeen, President & Chairman, British Sri Lankan Association
