A Note from Mike:
Cameras change, editing tools evolve, but one of
the most important aspects of this business must never
change—good storytelling. My goal is to air stories with poignancy and often
humor, inspirational and unique stories. I like to call them snapshots
from the human condition.
I brought my brand of storytelling to KCBS in Los Angeles and WFAA-TV in Dallas for a combined 9 years.
We changed the landscape of storytelling in L.A., ending the 5pm
newscast everyday with Our Man Mike pieces. We certainly did the same
thing in Dallas. We also helped take WFAA's morning show to number one
with live reporting. I currently work
as a live reporter on San Diego's Good Morning San Diego newscast. In
addition, I recently set out to do something never before done in this
business- air a half hour program using only a 120 dollar pocket Flip
camera. My concept, writing, editing, and shooting, the first Open Mike, won 3
Emmy Awards. The most recent has just been nominated for 5 Emmy Awards (see below).
