Mark Bright
Mark Bright, a prolific striker for Crystal Palace and Sheffield Wednesday, has worked for the BBC on TV and radio since 1999.

Born in 1962, Mark shot to fame when he struck up a dangerous partnership with Ian Wright at Crystal Palace.

At the time of Wright's lucrative move to Arsenal, Mark had the better scoring average.

He appeared in two Wembley finals, scoring in one but ending on the losing side in both.

After finishing his career at Charlton Athletic, he worked for Sky and ITV as a match summariser.

During the 1998 World Cup, Mark worked for the Big Breakfast and hosted a weekly punditry show during the 1998/9 season.

He first appeared on Match of the Day as a pundit in 1999, and reported from Belgium and Holland at the European Championships.

He presented Monday Night Football and The Mark Bright Show for Radio Five Live during 2000, and in 2001 began a new football phone-in programme with Ian Wright.

The Wright and Bright show was a resounding success, with the ex-strikers pulling on all their contacts and arranging some classic interviews.

Mark also presents sport on BBC London News.
