Mike Rogers joined the 8news crew in October 2020. Since June 2021, he’s produced Good Morning Richmond alongside fellow producer Julia Heimlich.
Mike graduated from the University of South Carolina in May 2020, studying broadcast journalism and political science. While in school, he enjoyed the privilege of working for Carolina News and Reporter, where he cultivated hands-on experience in just about every facet of news.
Calling him a “proud” Gamecocks sports fan might be an overstatement, but he’s still faithful his alma mater will one day beat the rival Clemson Tigers on the gridiron again.
A firm believer in the public benefit of local news, Mike is grateful for the opportunity to serve Central Virginia. He hopes that his shows enlighten, educate and entertain.
In his free time, you can find Mike writing music, working out and playing chess.
