Mark Hughes is a 25 year veteran of WVVA.

He has covered just about every big news story, from the Pittston strike in 1989 through the Virginia Tech Tragedy, as well as the Upper Big Branch Disaster. Mark has been fortunate to have been recognized twice by the West Virginia Associated Press for Best Photographic Journalism, by the West Virginia Broadcasters Association for Best Photojournalist, as well as the Shott Excellence in Media award in 2012.

Through the years Mark feels very lucky to have worked with many very talented young reporters that have moved on to bigger markets where they continue to well as the crop of young up and coming journalists on our staff now.

Mark was born and raised in Summers County, W Va. Mark has one son named Bryan and three grandchildren that he is really proud of; Gabriel, Rowan, and Jayk.  His hobbies include music, sports, and history. But his real passion is attending Virginia Tech football games with his family. GO HOKIES!

Over the years Mark is very proud to have been a small part of the enormous success that WVVA has enjoyed and looks forward to working many more years bringing local news to our viewers through his lens.
