Mike Raita

Mike is an EMMY award winning sportscaster and a 1981 graduate of Ohio University in Athens, Ohio. Mike got his start in broadcasting in 1981 with CNN, but his career as a sportscaster started in 1982 in Knoxville. Since then, in addition to Birmingham, Mike has worked in Cincinnati, Columbus and Dayton, Ohio.

Away from the office, when not at the ballpark, Mike enjoys working around his home. In fact he enjoys yard work so much that if he wasn't working in television, he says he'd like to have his own landscaping business.

The Associated Press has named Mike the State Of Alabama's "Best Sportscaster" on several occasions and the AP has also recognized his feature reporting. Mike has won the Southern League's "Broadcaster Of The Year" award twice.

You can catch Mike and his entertaining sportscast on deck Monday through Friday during the 5:00, 6:00 and 10:00 news on ABC 33/40.
