Jeff Michael

Jeff Michael is the weekday anchor at 5pm and 10pm for FOX 11 KTTV. Michael was named as Anchor for FOX 11’s newest show, Studio 11 LA, in September of 2011 after serving as Weekend News Anchor and Weekday Reporter. He assumed the Co-Anchor position of the FOX 11 10 O’clock news in February of 2014.

Michael came to KTTV FOX 11 in October 1998 after 8 years at KABC-TV in Los Angeles. There, he co-anchored the weekend newscasts and reported stories from the field on weekdays.

Michael began his career as a reporter-anchor in 1981 at the NBC affiliate in Reno, Nevada. From 1983-1987, Michael worked as an anchor-reporter at the ABC affiliate in Richmond, Virginia. From 1987-1990, he reported and anchored at WSVN-TV in Miami, Florida, where he won one of his many Emmy's for his “Crime Check” segment on the nightly news.

Michael has won several prestigious television news awards, including six Emmy's, two Golden Mike Awards and two Associated Press Awards for best investigative reporting.

Over the past 30 years, he has covered many national news events; the mass shooting in Aurora Colorado, the Space Shuttle Columbia disaster in Texas, the Oklahoma City Bombing, and others including presidential inaugurals and State of the Union addresses, to major commercial airline disasters, hurricanes, wildfires and earthquakes.

Michael reported live during the Los Angeles civil unrest following the acquittal of officers who arrested Rodney King and he followed O.J. Simpson on his slow-speed police chase and then covered the murder case against Simpson, including its controversial verdict.

A native of Sacramento, Calif., Michael received a BA degree in Mass Communications from U.C. Davis, is a proud San Francisco 49ers fan, a music lover and seems to get worse and worse every year at playing the guitar.

    Leftovers Stars Max and Charlie Carver Take the Cake (No, really… they did)!

    It’s always a little surreal when I get to interview an actor from a movie or tv show I watch. But sitting across from Charlie and Max Carver from HBO’s “The Leftovers” was twice as disorienting!

    Street Racers Say Deaths Will Continue Unless…

    On Studio 11 LA, Gina Silva covered the latest death from illegal street racing. Yes, that’s redundant—all street racing is illegal but, in this case, the scofflaw attitude of those who do it can’t be emphasized enough.

    I like to study as much as I can prior to interviews we do on Studio 11 LA. I was given Rick Springfield’s new novel “Magnificent Vibration” the night before he came by but didn’t open it up until two hours before we went on the air.
