"What I love about my job is that I am given a channel to reach out to so many people. I love that I have the chance to talk about a variety of topics and current issues on any given day. Delivering interesting stories and current events while providing new angles and viewpoints to my listeners is so rewarding."
Michaela has been WHBC's full time journalist and afternoon news anchor since 2012. However; she's been a member of the WHBC family since around 2010 when she began interning with the marketing department. Michaela spends most of her time in the news department where she delivers the latest news updates at the top and bottom of each hour on Weekdays from 12-7 and Saturday mornings from 6-7:30. Michaela is also the host of 'Live and Local at Noon' weekdays from 12-1. She also emcees area events, hosts the Sunday morning Focus on both 1480 and Mix 94.1, and made her debut appearance as the sideline high school football reporter for our TV programing in the 2013-2014 season.
From time to time you'll catch Michaela on the air filling in long time Canton's Morning News host, Pam Cook and she often makes appearances to deliver breaking news updates on every on-air show in the building.
Michaela got her start in radio just out of high school when she became the afternoon news anchor and reporter for WTUZ Radio in New Philadelphia at 19 years old.
