Mike joined the WACH FOX team as a weekend sports anchor in July 2016.

He comes to the Midlands from WXVT in Greenville, MS where he served as the station's weekend sports anchor. During his time in Greenville, Mike had the opportunity to cover the Sugar Bowl and NBA Playoffs, interview the great Bo Jackson one-on-one and was also recognized by the Mississippi Associated Press Broadcast Association for best sportscaster. Prior to landing his first full-time job in television, Mike worked as a correspondent for ESPNBoston.com.

In addition, Mike also played four years of collegiate football while at Assumption, following in the footsteps of Notre Dame head football coach Brian Kelly, who coincidently also attended the same high school as Mike (St. John's Prep in MA).
