Stylish Laughter 1 web

A native Winnipegger, Michael attended the Asper School of Business at the University of Manitoba, graduating in 2010 with a Bachelor of Commerce degree while majoring in accounting.

While a university student, he was heavily involved in the creation of the website and in 2010 expanded the Illegal Curve Radio Show to uStream (streaming audio/video), iTunes (podcasts) and Twitter (breaking news).

After graduation, Michael articled at a major accounting firm which taught him that his true interest was in sports media.

Following the return of the NHL to Winnipeg, Michael was hired by TSN 1290 Sports Radio and is currently the producer of the Donvito Roundtable previously hosted by sportscaster Rick Ralph, and now hosted by Kevin Olszewski.  This show can be heard weekdays from 11am – 1pm and from March 2015-February 2017 was seen on TSN3 TV from 12pm-1pm. Michael can be frequently heard on air with Andrew “Hustler” Paterson on the Gondola Pizza Warm-Up Show weekdays from 2 – 3pm.

When not working for TSN 1290, Michael is always checking Twitter, playing a variety of fantasy sports, and wondering when the Seattle Mariners will make their first playoff appearance since 2001.  Michael is also an avid fan of The Howard Stern Show and has followed his lead in developing a passion for photography.
