Mark Beretta is doing what he loves most - talking about sport. Mark presents the breaking sport stories of the day, as sport presenter for Seven's 6pm News in Sydney, and the national SUNRISE program. He also hosts and commentates on many of Seven Sport's major events, and is the fill-in host for David Koch on SUNRISE.

Mark began his career in journalism at radio 3GL, Geelong in 1988. The following year he moved to Triple M, Melbourne as a sports reporter, working alongside Richard Stubbs and the D-Generation.

In 1994, Mark signed with Channel Ten to present and report its National Basketball League coverage. His work impressed executives at Seven Melbourne and within a year, Mark was working as a sports reporter for the Seven Network.

While sport has always been his first love, Mark's other interests initially led him to the corporate sector. After graduating with an Engineering Degree, Mark worked with BHP and Honeywell.

A veteran of four Olympic Games broadcasts, Mark played a major role in Seven's coverage of the 2002 Olympic Winter Games in Salt Lake City. He commentated the gold medal winning performance of Australia's Alisa Camplin in the Freestyle Aerials, which he describes as his career highlight!

Beretta was himself a champion skier in his day, albeit on the water. He was a 10-time Australian water-skiing champion during the 1980s before turning his attention to sports journalism and broadcasting.

Ben Pettingill

Imagine waking up blind. One moment you can see, and in the next moment, your vision is made up only of childhood memories. At the tender age of 16, this became a reality for Ben Pettingill when overnight he lost 98% of his eyesight to a rare genetic syndrome, Lebers Hereditary Optic Neuropathy. While the shock, then grief of losing one's eyesight cannot be discounted, once Ben processed his new reality he realised that he had to make a choice that would define the rest of his life. Ben believed that a blind man could see, and his miracle was the activation of ‘True Vision' and 'Limitless Vision'. Vision enabled through purpose, perception and empowered decision making.
