Mark Beretta is best known as Sunrise’s popular sports reporter, but the handsome star also works as a 7Sport commentator, having travelled around Australia and the globe covering everything from motorsports to the Olympics.

Away from the screen, the 55-year-old is a doting family man, sharing teenagers Ava and Daniel with his beautiful wife, Rachel.

Reflecting on his hugely successful career, Mark admits that the constant travelling as a sports commentator and the early hours on Sunrise come with some sacrifices.
