Mike Anderson often doubles as his own photographer, shooting and editing most of his stories. He came to KSL in April 2011 after working for several years at KUTV.
The son of a retired newspaper editor, Mike grew up around news. He studied broadcast journalism at BYU Idaho, eventually graduating from Southern Utah University in 1999. From there, both he and his wife worked as reporters and anchors at the ABC station in Rapid City, South Dakota. Before bringing his family back to Utah, Mike spent several years in Florida, working for stations in Jacksonville and Orlando. While reporting at the FOX affiliate in Orlando, Mike served as the station’s Space Reporter. He regularly covered shuttle and rocket launches at Kennedy Space Center, in Cape Canaveral.
Originally from Southern California, Mike now considers Utah home. His wife grew up in North Ogden, which means the two of them and their three kids enjoy having plenty of family nearby.
When he’s not reporting the news or spending time with family, Mike can be seen performing stand up comedy at local clubs. He also occasionally performs out of state at various venues and colleges. His comedy has been heard on SIRIUS XM Satellite Radio, and seen at the HBO Aspen Comedy Festival.
