Retirement Due To Wife's Illness

The WCCO-TV sports anchor had initially planned to retire in August 2019. But, his wife’s life-threatening disease became the reason for Mark to consider retiring early in January 2019.

Speaking of the disease, Denise was diagnosed with a brain tumor and she underwent surgery to remove it in July 2018. The anchor's prime concern at the time was his wife's health, so he took a leave from his busy schedule for some months to take care of her.

Sharing his experience about dealing with his wife cancer, Mark said in an interview with StarTribune on 5th September 2018 that,

"It's been the worst month of my life, no doubt about it."

As of now, Denise is slowly recovering following her surgery in July 2018.
