Mark Thompson

Description   [from Freebase]

Mark Thompson is a two-time Emmy award winner for writing, hosting and producing specials for the Fox Television stations. No stranger to live TV, Mark Thompson is a regular hosting television shows of high drama and even life and death. Mark has hosted high profile "event" shows like Celebrity Daredevils Live (FOX) with Dennis Rodman and Angie Everhart, all the Robbie Knievel jumps since 1990 (building to building in Las Vegas, over a portion of the Grand Canyon, and over an oncoming train). He even was hosting a live Knievel jump during which the weather prevented the jump and Thompson was asked to "fill" for the entire hour. There was no jump and the show registered a 25 share. New Year's Eve viewers know Mark as a regular New Year's Eve host for FOX Television as well. In those shows he has presided over everything from building implosions to musical acts. Then with a different kind of drama and a bit of glamor, Mark Thompson hosted the "red carpet" arrival show for the most recent Emmy Awards on Fox Television (Sept. 2011). It was his second time hosting an Emmy red carpet show. Mark also hosted Hole in the Wall along with Brooke Burns for Fremantle Television.
