Mark Jones - Master of Ceremonies

Experienced, entertaining Awards Host and MC for sportsmen's dinners, Q&A's, fundraisers, charities, auctions, business events and more, UK and worldwide.


Mark Jones hosts awards, sportsmen's dinners, fundraisers and more, across the UK and worldwide.
He's MC'd countless events around the world, from awards to business summits, live TV shows, fundraisers, concerts, huge music festivals and more. He fronted a successful ‘sportsmen’s-dinners-for-the-troops’ tour in 2000 across war-torn Kosovo with England's World Cup winners ; he's even hosted the world-famous dog show 'Crufts', at the NEC Arena in Birmingham.
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 to those appearances, he continued to host numerous 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 all their televised tournaments across the UK, plus those in Dubai, Kuala Lumpur, Brunei and Macau, China, presenting the live TV interviews too. Mark has 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 presented 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.

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 the 'Biggest Solo Concert in history', Michael Jackson at Aintree Racecourse, where he entertained the crowd of over 125,000 onstage all day. 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.

Mark appeared in TV's 'Cold Feet', 'The Forsyte Saga' and 'Clocking Off' and has written several books.
