Sports Reporter/AnchorFollow me on Twitter
Austin may be a long way from home for Mike Berman, but he’s thrilled to be in Central Texas, a place he believes is right up there with the most passionate sports markets in the country.
Mike came to YNN in October, 2008 after a two-year stint as a sports reporter/anchor at WICS-TV in Springfield, Ill. Prior to that, he spent two years working as a sports reporter/anchor/producer at KOMU-TV in Columbia, Mo. While in Columbia, he also lent his voice to Missouri Tiger Baseball as its PA announcer for two springs.
Mike grew up in Northbrook, Ill., about 25 miles north of Chicago, living and dying with the Bulls, Bears and Cubs. Raucous nights at the Chicago Stadium and United Center, freezing cold Sundays at Soldier Field and summer afternoons at Wrigley Field are some of the best memories he has of growing up in “The Second City.”
Mike has a degree in Broadcast News from the School of Journalism at the University of Missouri. As a result, he’s a die-hard Mizzou fan. He says he'll try his best to keep his black and gold allegiances in-check while in Longhorn country.
When he’s not at the station, Mike likes to fish, play basketball, golf and spend time with family and friends.
