Local television personality Mark S. Allen got his start in radio in the 80’s on local station FM 102.5. He then went on to serve as producer/host of a segment called "Dateless and Desperate" on an Emmy award winning nationally syndicated teen show called "Scratch" ’90-’94, and hosted "Short Attention Span Theater" ’92-94 on Comedy Central (following John Stewart, and before Mark Marin).
After twelve years as Entertainment Reporter and Co-Host of CW 31’s Good Day Sacramento, Mr. Allen has certainly made his "Mark" in Sacramento after taking home two (2) Emmy’s for his show "Mark at the Movies" to which he serves as Host and Executive Producer. Emmy’s were presented at the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences ceremony held Saturday in San Francisco.
In additon to his Emmy wins, "Mark at the Movies" ran nationally for the first time Saturday after being picked up by the REELZ network.
You can catch Mark weekdays on Good Day Sacramento and weekends on "Mark at the Movies" both on CW31.
We here in Sacramento are proud of you Mark and celebrate your achievements along with you.
