Michael Spencer began working at CBS4 in June of 2016. His first assignment was going to the White House to cover the Super Bowl 50 Champion Denver Broncos when they met with President Obama.
“I moved to Denver and was doing live shots in Washington D.C. for my first assignment, it was an unbelievable way to make my Denver debut,” Michael said.
Michael’s love for sports started as a young boy.
“I remember watching Al Michaels on television and saying, ‘I want to do what he does.’ I’ve been privileged to cover sports in some great cities and Denver is a perfect fit. The fans have such a passion for sports which makes it fun to cover, and fun to talk about on a daily basis.”
Michael’s career started at the University of Missouri. After graduation he worked for KMID-TV in Midland, Texas before moving to KAMR-TV in Amarillo, Texas. After Amarillo, Michael moved to WATE-TV in Knoxville, Tennessee before landing a job at CBS4 in Denver.
“Denver is a dream city to cover sports in. I can’t think of a better place to be.”
When he’s not watching or covering sports you can find Michael out and about enjoying everything that Denver has to offer.
