HOME & FAMILY
Since 2012, Mark has hosted Hallmark Channel’s Emmy-nominated Home & Family, a daily lifestyle show, that allows him to tap into his creative and fun-loving approach to everyday life. Along with his co-host, Debbie Matenopoulos, they entertain and inform their audience with practical “how-to” segments including everything from cooking delicious recipes and offering fashion make-overs to crafting DIY projects, while interviewing celebrity guests and experts, live from their practical working home set on the Universal Studios Hollywood back lot.
Mark co-hosted the #1 syndicated entertainment news magazine show, Entertainment Tonight, for nearly 10 years. During his 17-year tenure, he interviewed Hollywood’s biggest stars. He covered the Oscars, Emmys and Golden Globes awards shows, flew in private jets with John Travolta, toured with Cher, swam with dolphins next to Jenna Elfman, and traveled to the biggest movie sets around the world.
As a sportscaster for KCAL-TV in Los Angeles, Mark walked the sidelines at the Super Bowl and sat court side covering NCAA’s March Madness. However, his unforgettable stories were the in-depth profiles that allowed him to tap into his adventurous and creative side of reporting. These include throwing himself off a mountain with the man who penned a book on tandem hang-gliding, bull riding with the professionals, learning to drive a race car, and traveling to the caves at Borneo. He won a Golden Mic Award for an extensive profile on the women of the National Football League and was awarded 3 of his 4 Emmys for his work as a journalist while at KCAL.
