Tomorrow you will become what you conceive of today.
This quote is not mine. But it summarizes the most important moments of my life.
I have been following my own path in the German media for over 25 years now. Many things have changed in this period. For me, and certainly in the media and communications field. One thing has remained the same: the passion and the joy with which I work in front of the camera or microphone.
Insights into many moments of my life – you can find them here.

Marc was born in Hannover on 04.12.1972. Radio already fascinated Marc as a grade-school student; he completed editorial internships. After high school, he presented several radio broadcasts for NDR 1 Niedersachsen.
Hamburg, at the end of 1992: Marc worked as a trainee at the private Alsterradio in Hamburg and took two years of intensive speech lessons. He worked as a reporter, presenter and news editor and learned the journalism business from the ground up. In the fall of 1994, the young radio journalist changed his field. The Bundesliga becomes entertainment for the whole family.
Every weekend, up to seven million people watch „ran – Sat.1 Fußball” and listen to the distinctive voice of a 21-year-old announcer. For six years, Marc Bator remains a part of this – when seen retrospectively – legendary sports editorial department and sets the foundation for his future television career.
1994 to 2000 – A resident of Hamburg, Marc worked nationwide for TV stations, production companies and advertising agencies. In seven years, he spoke in more than ten thousand production campaigns for national and international brands.
In May 2000, Marc Bator switched exclusively to ARD Aktuell. A move in front of the camera followed. At the beginning of 2005, Bator presented his first prime-time “20 Uhr Tagesschau”.
A year later, he moderated the “NDR Nordtour – das norddeutsche Reisemagazin” on NDR television. As a news anchor for the program “Neues im Norden” in 2007, he wrote his own texts, did telephone interviews live and spoke to experts about current issues affecting the North.
Marc Bator spoke with athletes and celebrities at all Bundesliga home matches of the Hamburger SV as a part of the stadium show from 2008 onwards. In 2010, he presented the magazine “Mein gutes Recht” on WDR television; it was specially tailored to him.
In addition to his work in front of the camera, Bator worked as an off-speaker in numerous productions for the ARD. He lent his voice as a “voice of the station” to the program package of NDR2, the most successful radio program in northern Germany.
Marc was the multiple co-commentator of the cycling race “Rund um den Finanzplatz Eschborn-Frankfurt” on HR television. In the spring of 2013, Marc said farewell to the ARD.
Marc Bator moved on to the ProSiebenSat.1 commercial broadcasting group – he is head anchorman of the Sat.1 news and also moderated a number of political summer interviews. As a part of the editing team, he is active in the journalistic shaping of the news programs and is striving to continually develop them. He regularly gives media and communication training to executives in various industries.
In the summer of 2014, he founded TEAMVISION with partners; it is a company for management and marketing in professional sports that focuses on working with top-level athletes. Bator works as an advisor and negotiator. In the spring of 2018, he completed an advanced education program in sports management at the University of St. Gallen, Switzerland.
Marc Bator is married and the father of two daughters. He lives in Berlin.

For me, moderating events means being close to people. Direct contact with the audience. Panel discussions, talks with state ministers, scientists… I was even allowed to welcome the President. Awards ceremonies, birthdays, market launches or talk shows. Event moderation makes my job so exciting and versatile.
I have enjoyed repeatedly supporting charitable organizations such as „ Welthungerhilfe“ or BILD’s „Ein Herz für Kinder“. Because my heart also beats for sports, I support „Dein Name für Deutschland“, a campaign organized by the Stiftung Deutsche Sporthilfe. By the way, every once in a while you can see me in a film, in the role of a newscaster or sports reporter – what else?
Please direct all enquiries directly to one of the addresses listed under contact.
Talking remains another great passion inmy life. I was involved in innumerable productions. I had to take lessons, had many years of training day and night, until I could speak the way directors and producers wanted me to. Up until the present day, it gives me great joy to hear my voice in a context outside of the news. My voice has been loaned out to well-known brands or as a part of a prizewinning documentary – here is a small selection.

Here they are, the visible moments of my life. I think it is similar to many: especially in the older photos, I have to really laugh today and think about how I could have possible worn this shirt. And the hairstyle… open your eyes and go for it. A memory comes back with each image. And these were beautiful moments, that I can tell you.
