Best known for his role on Global TV's Sportsline, Mark Hebscher stands out from the crowd with his provocative, no-nonsense broadcast style.

One of the most diverse broadcasters in media for the past three decades, Mark Hebscher is now co-hosting the “No Fun Intended” podcast with Liz West. “Square Off” had a 13 year run on CHCH TV in Hamilton Ontario, and now Mark and Liz have taken the show to the next level.
Mark is likely best known for his 16 years hosting the groundbreaking show “Sportsline” on Global Television, and later CHCH TV. He has been a radio disc jokey, sports talk show host, play by play man, color commentator, show presenter, TV sports anchor and has conducted close to 10 thousand interviews, from Muhammad Ali to Ed the Sock.
Mark Hebscher is a highly sought after Speaker and EmCee.

Behind The Scenes Of Sports - Humour
Having spent the better part of 20 years hosting or co-anchoring sports shows on Global, Headline Sports and Sportsnet television, Mark Hebscher has had numerous encounters, interviews and direct access to athletes and coaches while traveling with them on the road. Suffice to say Mark Hebscher is uniquely qualified to bring and share behind-the-scenes adventures, dramas, stories and humourous anecdotes accumulated throughout his continuing broadcast career.
He's seen it all, and has experienced such "events" as being slapped on the backside or having snow dumped on his head from professional Hockey players skating by, while conducting LIVE on-air broadcasts. As a joke, Wayne Gretzky once tried to disconnect his microphone cord during an on-air interview.
Because Mark hosted Global’s "Sportsline" for 11 years, naturally he highlights this presentation with a mock sports broadcast from the year 2025. Try projecting yourself into the future and imagine how many teams are now in the NHL and where they’re located? What will Don Cherry or Ron MacLean be up to? What famous athletes will become embroiled with the law or with fans? Mark makes some very entertaining predictions.
In addition, his extremely popular and trademark "Hebsy Awards" which are an extensive collection of hilarious sports bloopers, can be customized for any event and audience.
