Mark Jones



Mark Jones would happily admit that award ceremonies and sporting dinners are his specialist subjects;  he often gets to meet his heroes, gets paid and, most importantly, he gets fed!
He has compèred hundreds of events, working alongside David Beckham, Andrew 'Freddie' Flintoff, Frank Bruno, Ryan Giggs and Sir Alex Ferguson. He even fronted a very successful “sportsmen's-dinners-for-the-troops tour of war-torn Kosovo in 2000 with the late Alan Ball and Jack Charlton.

In 2011 Mark hosted events all over the world including Brunei, USA, Malaysia, Portugal,  Germany, Switzerland and Hungary. 

In the UK he's fronted Manchester United's and Aston Villa's Player-of-the-Year awards, and many other prestigious awards ceremonies, including the MBNA North West Football Awards. 
He's been the regular live MC for the Masters' Football Series for the past decade, (shown live throughout Europe on Sky Sports) and for the Masters International Tournaments in Dubai, UAE; Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia; Brunei and Macau, China.  During the 2011 South East Asia Tournament, he presented all the live TV interviews for ESPN.
Mark is often heard as Everton's match day announcer at Goodison Park but he's also covered Rugby League and cricket and presented the pre-match interviews with cricket legends Sir Ian Botham, David Gower, Michael Holding and Richie Benaud. 

He has covered the Manchester United and Liverpool FC pre-season American Tours for UK radio, and, in 2001, was only a few blocks away from the World Trade Center Towers in lower Manhattan on that fateful 9/11 morning, where he volunteered to help the rescue services and reported 'live' from Ground Zero for UK radio.

An experienced radio presenter, he has won several awards. These include a prestigious Sony for his hosting of the Michael Jackson Aintree Racecourse concert. 

After several very successful years at Century FM* (*now Real Radio) Mark returned to Radio City's Magic 1548 in Liverpool, to host a daily UK-networked programme. He's also heard on Manchester's Magic 1152 (formerly Piccadilly Radio). Lately, he's also been heard on US radio station W-E-F-T and Q-96 in Central Illinois where he hosted the black-tie 2010 and 2011 American Heart Association Fundraising Dinners in Champaign, Illinois.

Mark has written and published several books, including the best-selling 'Mark Jones' Birthday Book', which became the definitive UK Radio reference book.
