Mike Curkov, Anchor
Mike Curkov co-anchors CBS 58 Morning News with Jessica Tighe weekday mornings from 4:30-7:00 AM.
Mike grew up in the Chicago suburbs but spent plenty of summers with his family exploring Wisconsin from the bike trails in Sparta to the Dells to his godparents’ cottage in New Chester and winters on the slopes at Devil’s Head and Cascade Mountain.
He’s looking forward to making new Milwaukee memories with his wife, Allison and son, Benjamin.
Mike comes to CBS 58 from Local 22 & Local 44 News in Burlington, VT. He co-anchored the morning show there covering stories from Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign to the escape of two prisoners from Clinton Correctional Facility in Dannemora, NY.
Before news, Mike was a sports guy. Covering sports in Vermont, Wichita, KS and Rockford, IL.
It would make Mike very happy if you would connect with him on social media.
