Started his television career as a cameraman and moved into continuity with TVS before joining Thames Television as a continuity announcer in the 1980s. He stayed until Carlton took over and was the only member of the Thames continuity team to move to the new station when it took over on January 1 1993. Mark was Carlton's senior announcer until October 2002 when the station's London identity was dropped. However, Mark continues to present weekend bulletins for Central News South - a role he has been performing since 1991. He has also presented the main early evening news programme during the week.

Mark spoke to TTVRP in January 2006: "Over the past three-and-a half-years I have had the opportunity of working on a number of projects at Central News. I was Assistant Producer on a few outside broadcasts including Central's pan-regional 'Britain On The Move' campaign and the Fairford Royal International Air Tattoo. More recently while our studio was being redesigned for the ITV rebranding, we took Central News outside and presented the programme from five of the region's hospitals. I helped produce this and was also the roving reporter each night taking on a variety of tasks, from sampling the hospital Christmas dinners to being a cleaner for the day and hospital porter. My skills were also put to the test one night when due to sickness with one of our directors, I ended up directing the outside broadcast. It was a great week and well received by the viewers. That together with some radio presenting and voice-over work, I have been a busy man since leaving Carlton."

Mark started out in student radio; he became the voice of the National UK Student Radio Chart in the late-1990s.

He was programme controller for the Student Broadcast Network until shortly before it's demise, and then took on the role of software support specialist for RCS UK, providing training and support to TV and radio industry users of Selector, Linker and Master Control in the UK and Ireland.

Mark became a freelance continuity announcer for ITV 2 in 2001 at a time when continuity was still broadcast live, and subsequently moved to ITV 1 where he has been a staff announcer since 2004.

Mark is also a freelance music programmer and has worked for Classic FM and several smaller GCAP Media stations.
