Early life and education
Spain's career began as a paper carrier for The Cleveland Press, while he was still in junior high school. After graduating from high school, he studied communications and received a BA from Cleveland State University.
Before his move to the Florida television market, Spain worked in the Cleveland area television market, initially as a news reporter for WEWS-TV, the local ABC affiliate. He then later served as the 5:00 pm co-anchor with Macie Jepson at WJW-TV, the local Fox TV affiliate, from 1996-2000. He would also serve as a fill-in anchor/reporter for the 10:00 PM weekday and the weekend news broadcasts. He then moved on to the Jacksonville market in 2000, originally under the employment of First Coast News. While at FCN, Mark co-anchored First Coast News at 7. He resigned from his positions there in 2007, to anchor CBS 47 News at 6 and FOX 30 News at 10 at WTEV and WAWS respectively. He replaced Russell Motley. After the duopoly rebranded into one brand, Action News, Mark was promoted to anchoring all evening newscasts alongside Paige Kelton.
