Mike Sugerman

mike sugerman bio head Mike SugermanMike is one of the best storytellers in the United Statesmag glass 10x10 Mike Sugerman, and has the hardware to prove it. His 8 individual National Edward R. Murrow Awards rival any local news reporter in the country.

He’s among the most honored broadcast journalists in Califonria with a total of 14 Emmys, including 6 Best Writing awards, and more than 100 other national, state, regional, and local awards. Mike Sugerman brings his unique perspective to KPIX 5 after two decades at KCBS Radio, where he still reports on a weekly basis.

You name it, Mike has covered it. He was assigned to cover the Nixon impeachment trial for his college radio station, but Nixon resigned hours before Mike made it to Washington. He’s been to three national political conventions, six World Series, and a Super Bowl. His first television appearance was on the Dating Game as a college freshman (he won!!)

Mike graduated college with a BA in political science from UCLA and later earned a Masters Degree, also in Political Science, from San Jose State. Later, he attended the University of Chicago for post-graduate study. In 2006, Mike, a fledgling guitarist, put together the Eyewitness Blues Band with other broadcast journalists who could actually play musical instruments. Remarkably, people seem to like them and they play on a regular basis.

He was born in Chicago, and grew up in Los Angeles, though he gave up on the Dodgers when he moved to the Bay Area in 1979 (and is now a loyal Giants fan). He lives in San Francisco with his wife Janice Wright (a KCBS reporter), and has two grown sons, Max and Will.
