Mark was indeed the voice of CITY-TV for as long as I can remember.
"the City, EVERYWHERE.": I believe he was from the U.S. as are a number of GTA celebrities on radio and TV. All media local and nationwide is changing and usually not for the better. He will be missed. Maybe CITY-TV could continue to use his voice over staion breaks, similar to the NY Yankees using the now-dead announcer with the deep voice just for Derek Jeter.
Aww man, heard this today on the news. Will miss the old guy. Miss seeing him at the Martini Bar on Victoria street. He would chill there and talk to the patrons and staff and have a drink before his 11:00 o'clock news gig.
I remember when he went on-air and announced he had the disease. I really thought he would beat it. He was very upbeat and positive about it, and imperative about getting your prostate checked. RIP Mark.
I always loved his Star Trek promos, "Your Federation Station". I'm glad he was at least able to give his daughter away in marriage this past fall. Having just done that myself in June, it's at least a bit of a comfort.
Just want to echo all the sentiments written here. Mark Dailey was by all accounts, a class act and a genuinely good guy. And oh, what a voice. It never crossed my mind that he wouldn't beat this terrible diease. I just expected him to show up on-air again and everything would be fine. A sad, sad day, and a loss for all of us.
Guys, heed his words...get tested. It could save your life.
