Mike Valente is very eager to get started as a reporter for WDTV, covering Harrison & Doddridge counties. He joined the team in May 2016, traveling from New York City.
Mike graduated from Syracuse University in May 2015, earning his B.S. in Broadcast & Digital Journalism.
Shortly after graduation, Mike joined ABC News Radio, where he served as an Associate Producer, writing, editing, and managing content. His true passion, though, is reporting.
A self-described news junkie, Mike quickly jumped at the opportunity to get on air while studying at Syracuse. He was heavily involved at WJPZ for four years, hosting a weekly show focused on current events, as well as contributing to a morning talk show. In addition to his work in Syracuse, Mike interned with Howard Stern at SiriusXM and contributed to The Daily Freeman in upstate New York.
In his spare time, Mike enjoys traveling, going to museums, exercising, reading and listening to scary stories, and of course, watching his New York Mets. He plans on diving right into everything wild and wonderful West Virginia has to offer! Don't hesitate to send any story ideas his way!
