Meet your lead anchor – Mark Kielesz-Levine

Born in Leeds, Mark has grown up in the city and in neighbouring Harrogate. He studied at three different Universities, gaining a BA Hons in History from Newcastle University and a MA at the University of Leeds, before re-training as a Journalist at Leeds Trinity University with a distinction in Broadcast Journalism. Football is a main interest for Mark, having nearly made it professionally when he was younger and is a big fan of the arts scene too. Before he became a journalist, Mark tried his hand at acting and even appeared in a film that was shown at Cannes Film Festival!


Mark started his journalist career freelancing in radio for Global Radio at Heart and Capital, before freelancing for Made in Leeds TV in 2015. Mark became the Lead News Presenter later that year and then the Network Lead Presenter in November 2017 for Made TV News.
