Mark Dye


Radio Host, Traveller, MC, Presenter

Mark has been working in media here in New Zealand since he was 18. From weekends at The Edge to the drive show on ZM and more recently, afternoons on Newstalk ZB with co-host Kerre McIvor. He is more than just a familiar voice from the radio though, having graced our screens as a presenter on The Erin Simpson Show, for MTV, and of late, as the host of TVNZ’s Heartbreak Island.

Outside of the media, Mark is an entrepreneur. He is the CEO of medicinal cannabis company NUBU Pharmaceuticals, a company he co-founded in 2017. This year will see him and his team build out a number of facilities so as the company can grow and manufacture medicinal cannabis products for local and international markets.

An avid traveller too - he’s nearly visited a third of the world, whoever your audience, Mark will be able to connect, making for the perfect host or MC for your next event.

Emily Amey, TVNZ Senior Publicist

Mark was a true professional throughout the whole event. He arrived early and ran through the speech, ensuring that he had the key notes down alongside adding in valuable suggestions. He mixed and mingled with guests, which included key trade and sales clients alongside media.

We would have no issue recommending Mark to host an event and would definitely get him back to host other activities for TVNZ.
