When away from the station, Mike and his wife Elise are busy tending to their home, their two puppies "Chip" & "Shelby", and spending time with their family, and grandsons! He's also a classic car and music enthusiast, and can often be found hosting various Car Cruises and Concerts in our area. He's also the "official voice" of the popular "My Music" Concert Series on PBS. He loves to work with area charitable organizations too..."Once An Eagle Scout; Always An Eagle Scout"!
