Mike has been at TV6 for nearly 30 years, with the first three or so in the news department, and the remainder in sports.
Mike feels there's nothing like covering U.P. sports because every time you go below the Mackinac Bridge, you're automatically the underdog in the eyes of most Lower Peninsula folks. That makes winning state titles even better, Mike says.
Mike graduated from Grand Ledge HS in 1981 and from Michigan State in 1985 with a B.A. in Telecommunication. His wife, Julie, is a Negaunee and NMU grad. She's a nurse in Marquette. They have two sons; Steven and Eric. Both attended Negaunee Schools. Both boys have been heavily involved in football, basketball, tennis and baseball.
