Mark Thompson is a two-time Emmy award winner for writing, hosting and producing specials for the Fox Television stations. Mark was the on-air nightly weather anchor and lifestyle reporter for KTTV FOX 11 in Los Angeles. Since he started appearing on Channel 13 (the Fox owned sister station of Channel 11 in L.A.) Thompson was known for dancing during the weather reports on the 11 PM newscasts. Thompson said he did it on a whim but when email reaction was so enormously positive he kept it going. It quickly gained not only a local following but nationwide attention as well. He was featured Jimmy Kimmel Live on October 5, 2006 and on Brit Hume's program on Fox News Channel among others.
Prior to working in Los Angeles, Thompson worked as a weather anchor for KRON-TV, then an NBC affiliate in San Francisco. He previously served as an on-air weather anchor and science/environmental reporter at KMGH-TV, the ABC affiliate in Colorado, and worked at WKBW-TV, the ABC affiliate in Buffalo, New Yor. Mr. Thompson ended his roughly twenty years on FOX 11 in KTTV Los Angeles on June 3rd, 2011.
