In 2001, Mark was very close (much too close, in fact) to New York's Twin Towers during the 9/11 terrorist attacks. He spent the remainder of that day as a Salvation Army volunteer helping Emergency Services and First Responders, and for the rest of the week he reported ‘live’ from Ground Zero for UK radio.

He's also hosted huge Paul McCartney concerts and Liverpool's annual Mathew Street Festival, with over 55,000 in the audience every day. He was regularly voted ‘Presenter of the month' and received numerous accolades from the Variety Club of Great Britain, where he is a long-standing 'Barker' in the organisation.
Mark has covered Manchester United's, Celtic's and Liverpool’s pre-season American tours for UK radio. He had several successful years broadcasting on the two Century networks (now Smooth Radio), and he was regularly heard on Manchester’s Magic 1152 (formerly Piccadilly Radio) too. He has even spread his experienced wings overseas, and 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, helping to raise record-breaking amounts in the auctions.
Not limiting his talents to radio, Mark has written and published several books, including the best-selling ‘Mark Jones’ Birthday Book’, which became the definitive UK Radio reference book.

Mark Jones was excellent as MC, he had the room laughing most of the evening, kept the whole event running to time (something I was particularly worried about) did everything we requested of him and more, so much so we would like to book him again for our event next year...
