Sports Director

Connect With Me


A former lifelong resident of the Midwest, Mike is thrilled to be a current resident of the Bluegrass State.

Mike has been in broadcasting since 1984 and has worked at television stations in Illinois, Indiana, and Iowa. Mike spent the last 10 years in Indiana, serving as Sports Director at WLFI-TV in West Lafayette and, most recently, three years as the weeknight news anchor at WTHI-TV in Terre Haute.

Mike says the opportunity to return to covering sports and the friendliness of South Central Kentucky residents is what attracted him to joining the WBKO family.

A native of Lawrenceville, Illinois and a University of Iowa graduate, Mike enjoys a number of hobbies in his spare time, including golf, bowling, hiking, movies, rooting for his beloved St. Louis Cardinals, and spending time with his family.
