Mark Thompson and CNN Latino anchor Elizabeth Espinosa host a popular early afternoon weekday talk program on KFI in Los Angeles. The Thompson & Espinosa Show.
Mark Thompson is a native of Washington, D.C., graduated from Colgate University. He also studied at Oxford University in the United Kingdom.
Thompson is a regular on the charity and fundraising circuit. He is an active supporter of many philanthropic enterprises with a concentration in the areas of advocacy for animals, education and environmental charities.
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.
Thompson was the host of the weekly entertainment program That's So Hollywood and was one of the primary fill-in hosts on Good Day L.A., Fox's highest rated Los Angeles morning show.
