Jota Mario Valencia Yepes (born Jorge Mario Valencia Yepes in 1956) is a Colombian television presenter. He was born in Bogotá.


He attended the Universidad de La Sabana in Bogotá and was one of the founders of the Colprensa news agency.

He began in television in 1979, presenting the program Valores Humanos (Human Values) for Promec Televisión. In 1983, he began hosting Promec's Noticiero Promec, which remained on the air for four years.

He also was one of Caracol Televisión's most well-known personalities while that company was still a programadora; he hosted programs such as Telesemana, Cazadores de la Fortuna, Sábados Felices and Día a día.

He briefly left Colombia in May 2000, citing violence and threats against his family.[1] He would return a year later, this time working with RCN Televisión.

He has also published five books, most of which are spiritual in nature: Volver a Vivir, El Ángel del Amor, Correo Angelical and Llena Eres de Gracia, plus Insúltame Sí Puedes.
