Mike joined the News Channel 7 weather team in September of 1999 and has loved every minute of it. Before coming to KRCR, he was in Wichita Falls, Texas right in the heart of Tornado Alley. Although Mike enjoyed storm chasing, the Northstate’s beauty more than makes up for the thrill of chasing storms. After getting his degree in communication at Eastern New Mexico University in 1995 he moved to San Francisco where he studied weather for two more years at San Francisco State University.
You may remember Mike starting out on weekends at News Channel 7 until he eventually worked his way up to the morning show. Although he enjoyed the atmosphere (no pun intended) of the morning show he doesn't miss waking up at 3:00 in the morning!
When Mike isn't in the First Alert Weather Center you will find him spending time with his son Aiden and girlfriend Sadie either at home or in the great outdoors enjoying what the Northstate has to offer. In 2003 and again in 2014 Mike had an opportunity to climb to the summit of Mount Shasta and plans to do it again in the future.
