News Anchor/Reporter, WLEX TV Kentucky
Michael Berk joined LEX-18 in December of 2015, after spending 2 1/2 years as a Sports Anchor and Reporter with the CBS affiliate up the road in Cincinnati.
Berk has spent most of his career working in sports departments across the country including stops in Eugene, Oregon, Las Vegas, and Portland, Oregon. While in Las Vegas, he anchored news on several occasions, and “got the bug” to make it more of a long-term career choice.
“After several opportunities to move to news presented themselves, WLEX just seemed like the perfect fit. I liked everything about the place during my visit. I am really looking forward to this new and exciting challenge,” Berk said.
The switch to news with LEX-18 is really just a return to his roots in the business, as Michael started in the industry by anchoring morning-drive newscasts for a small radio station in New York’s West Chester County.
A two-time winner of the Oregon Association of Broadcaster’s TV Sportscaster of the Year award, Michael will be co-anchoring with Angie Beavin on the 4:30, 5:30 and 7pm editions of LEX-18 News, Monday through Friday.
