Reporter/Producer
Michael produces KBOI 2News at 10 p.m. but still turns special reports on the side, like warning parents that their children might sleep through smoke alarms and helping a Nampa woman sort out her year-long mold battle. He started reporting as a multimedia journalist in August 2013.

The Idaho Press Club awarded him first place in two categories – consumer report and TV writing – for putting key chain alcohol detectors to the test. (Stories that aired in Boise last year were eligible.)

Michael graduated with a broadcast journalism degree from Ohio University, where he reported, anchored and produced at WOUB. He worked at the Ohio Statehouse during the 2012 election season, covering state government and the presidential campaigns of Barack Obama and Mitt Romney.

Outside the newsroom, Michael has found hiking and backpacking are great ways to experience Idaho’s beauty. One of his new favorites is skiing. (He just learned at Bogus Basin in January.) He also enjoys squirrel-watching, stand-up comedy and indie films.
