"Doing live reporting from the White House was an incredible way to make my Colorado television debut. I had the opportunity to cover so many big events in sports, and as I transition to news I'm looking forward to continuing to cover stories that matter to our community and our viewers."

Michael lives with his wife Hailey and daughter Stella. When he's not anchoring the news, you can find Michael and his family enjoying our local parks, exploring the vibrant culinary scene, or checking out a sporting event.
