Mike Shiers

Sports Anchor

Charlottesville, Va.

Mike Shiers is the main Sports Anchor at NBC29, and he brings over two decades of experience in local news to the position.

Mike joined the NBC29 News team as the 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.

He previously worked in northwest Georgia and southeast Tennessee.

Mike married his wife in 2014, and the couple had their wedding reception at a baseball stadium.

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 1996 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.
