Mike Foley joined WCBE in February 2000, coming from WUFT in Gainesville, Florida. He earned Broadcasting and Journalism degrees from the University of Florida.
Growing up in the Sunshine State, Mike continues to adjust to Ohio’s winters. Repeated attempts to structure a contract that would allow him to stay home on days when the temperature falls below 60 have failed. But Foley finds strength in the lyrics of Eddie Vedder - “no matter how cold the winter, there’s a springtime ahead.”
Foley works on variety of news and feature stories and also assists in developing WCBE's Podcast Experience. Hosting and producing the Music Journeys podcast remains his greatest professional passion.
Mike loves spending time with his family. He's been married to an Ohio State grad since 1996, proving that Gators and Buckeyes can get along. They have a son in college, a daughter in high school, and a daughter in middle school. The Foleys are animal lovers too and currently have two dogs.
A new report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention finds suicide rates rose in nearly every state from 1999 through 2016.
