In 1989, Mike left his forklift running and began writing, directing and acting in children’s theater at Chicago’s world-famous Second City Theater and performing in local improvisation shows. In 1991 he took his act to radio; the medium he fell in love with as a child. A five time recipient of the Illinois Association of Broadcasters Silverdome Award for outstanding achievement in radio broadcasting; Mike blends candid conversation, humor and a passion for the music to start his listeners’ day. An avid outdoorsman, he enjoys spending time in the Great Outdoors. When home, he likes cooking, playing with his cat, listening to his enormous record collection or watching old movies.
Mike can be heard Weekday Mornings on RIverCountry and Saturdays from 12pm – 3pm and 10pm – 12am and Sunday from 9pm – Midnight on The Valley.
