Mark Curtis made his first appearance on valley airwaves back in June of 1980. Back in those days, Curtis and his mustache went all over the country covering sports for 12 news. He remained at 12 through 1987 when he and his pregnant wife Abby packed their bags for Minneapolis where he covered the Twins amazing run to the 1987 World Series! After three years in the Twin Cities it was on to St. Louis where Curtis not only worked as the main sportscaster but was also the play by play voice for St. Louis University basketball.
But deep inside, Curtis and his quickly growing family wanted to return to Phoenix. In 1995 he finally did, returning to 12 News. It wasn’t long before Mark made the switch, moving over to join Lin Sue on the anchor desk. Since returning to 12, Mark has covered the Olympics in Atlanta, Salt Lake City, Athens, London and Sochi, Russia. Mark who went to the University of Georgia and then American University, has 3 children, all Sun Devils, his wife Abby is a Sun Devil, but his Bouvier Olivia, is not. Mark enjoys golfing, growing tomatos and fishing in his spare time.
