Mike Shiers joined the NBC29 News Team as a weekend sports anchor in September of 2009.
A proud graduate of Syracuse University, Mike comes to Charlottesville from WALB in Albany, Georgia, where he served as weekend sports anchor for three years.
Mike is very happy to be back in a part of the country which knows and loves lacrosse.
He enjoys playing golf, shooting darts, and cheering on the Red Sox.
Mike can run a sub-four minute mile, has climbed six of the world's fourteen highest mountain peaks, and won a bronze medal in the 2000 Olympics in Atlanta for Archery. When he's not covering sports around the region for NBC29, Mike works as a NASCAR test driver, and (clearly) enjoys making up tall tales.
You can email Mike to hear all about the time he turned an unassisted triple play...in kickball.
