Mark Sayre


Mark Sayre joined KTVU in 2022. He brings more than a decade of experience covering the South Bay and the wider Bay Area and was on the front lines of many of the biggest recent stories including the pandemic, the construction and opening of both Levi’s Stadium and the eastern span of the Bay Bridge, the BART extension to Santa Clara County, wildfires, floods, elections and a wide variety of public policy programs and controversies. 

Mark previously worked for KPIX, where he also covered the South Bay.  He has also worked at KCBS/KCAL in Los Angeles and at two different stations in Las Vegas in a variety of roles including news anchor and investigative reporter.  Mark has three individual local Emmy awards and was on the reporting team which won the Radio and Television News Association of Southern California award for best evening newscast in Los Angeles.   

Mark is a Bay Area native and graduated from both U.C. Berkeley and the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism. Mark worked in the news department at KALX-FM, the student-run radio station at Berkeley. Mark was also previously a news intern at KTVU.  

Mark feels the Bay Area is an amazing place of rich diversity, opportunity and progress yet also has many challenges. He feels lucky to live here and to cover these significant longer-term issues. 

Before embarking on his journey as a parent Mark traveled the world and has visited more than 50 countries. Seeing so many different places, cultures, and ways of life has made Mark even more appreciative of what we have here at home.  Today he has become somewhat of an expert on traveling to a wide variety of youth sports venues and discovering the best deals at the snack bar during games.
