Mike Peal

Sports Reporter/Anchor

Mike joined Action News as a sports anchor and reporter in October 2012.

Before arriving at WBNG, Mike was a video journalist for a local news website in Fairfield County, CT. There, he served as a lead reporter in Stamford and Norwalk, CT.

Mike graduated cum laude from the University of Connecticut with a bachelors degree in journalism. One of his fondest college memories is experiencing the 2011 men's basketball team's wild ride to a national title. Mike helped cover the Huskies' championship for the campus TV station, UCTV.

He also interned at Connecticut’s CBS affiliate, WFSB-TV in Rocky Hill, CT.

Originally from West Haven, CT, Mike grew up on UConn basketball and New Haven's famous Wooster Street pizza. He is well aware he is smack in the middle of Syracuse country, and is disappointed the UConn-Syracuse rivalry might have ended now that the Huskies and Orange have split to different conferences.

But Mike is also a lifelong Mets fan and looks forward to watching the team's future stars up close and in person.
