Mike Levin is the Sports Director at NEWSChannel 2. He also co-anchors Sports Express on Friday Nights.
Mike joined NEWSChannel 2 as the weekend sports anchor in 2010. He came from Albany where he was a sports photographer and anchor at WNYT, the NBC affiliate. Prior to that, he was the Sports Director at WNVS in Beckley, West Virginia.
Mike is glad to be back in the Mohawk Valley, where he worked as the sports web producer in 2006. That came on the heels of his internship with the station while earning his Masters in Broadcast Journalism at the Newhouse School at Syracuse University. He met his fiancée, a native of Newport, while working here.
Mike has other ties to Central New York as well, having received his bachelor's degree from the Park School at Ithaca College. He also visits Cooperstown often, because of his love for baseball and even popped the question in the "Birthplace of Baseball."
A native of the Needham, Massachusetts, Mike is a die hard Boston Sports fan and is particularly passionate about the Red Sox and Celtics. Since he still has strong family ties in the Boston area, Mike enjoys returning to his old stomping grounds to see the whole Levin clan.
