Mike Sullivan joined the FOX59 news team in June of 2018. He comes to Central Indiana after spending time reporting news and sports in Ohio and Minnesota.
Mike knew he wanted to be a reporter in his teens, and spent countless nights falling asleep to ESPN SportsCenter. He got his first taste of covering news during the Boston Marathon bombings. Mike jumped into action when the explosions went off just a few blocks from him. He was one of the first people to report live for his station in Boston, despite being a behind-the-scenes employee at the time. It was his first live report on-air. Needless to say, a reporter was born.
He left Boston, and became a multimedia journalist in Minnesota covering news and sports. There, Mike was a runner up for two Associated Press awards in both news and sports. He carried on his dual role while reporting in Dayton, Ohio. His experience in both facets of the newsroom has taken him from the sidelines of the MLB All-Star game to the tragic moments of school shootings.
Mike lives to tell interesting stories in a way that entertains and captivates his audience. Around the newsroom, you can often find him hatching an out-of-the-box scheme to tell his story in an unexpected and unique way.
Mike is originally from Boston, Massachusetts, and is a graduate of Boston University. As is accustomed to anyone from New England, he is a Patriots and Red Sox fan, but he hopes Colts fans won’t hold that against him.
