Mike joined the KIMT staff in September of 2012.
He was born and raised in Fort Dodge, Iowa and from an early age loved television news and journalism, especially sports newscasts like ESPN. His love for journalism began in high school, joining his high school newspaper staff as a sports reporter and ultimately became the editor in his final year. For as long as he could remember, he wanted to be a Hawkeye and made that dream a reality in the fall of 2008.
Spending the best four years of his life, he graduated in four years from the University of Iowa in Journalism and Sports Studies. During his four years he worked for Daily Iowan TV as a news and sports reporter, producer and spent his senior year as the Chief Technical Director. Mike also worked for the Big Ten Network directing and shooting live Hawkeye sporting events.
In his free time, Mike enjoys watching his Hawkeyes, other college football and basketball games, NFL and anything sports related. He also enjoys hanging out with his friends and family and loves going home to see his niece and two nephews.
