Mike Lopez's Bio
I joined WEAU in March 2013 after serving as assistant news director for WVEC-TV, the ABC affiliate in Norfolk, VA. As a "welcome to Wisconsin", it snowed 6 inches my first day in the newsroom.
I started my broadcasting career as a part-time video editor at WAVY-TV in Norfolk, where I also served as the shop's worst "Friday Night Football" photographer.
Editing & shooting led to my first news producer job, producing weekend mornings, and I eventually moved into full-time producing.
After a few years I joined KRON-TV in San Francisco as a news producer, and from there it was on to Indianapolis and WISH-TV as executive producer.
Two years later I returned to Norfolk as executive producer at WAVY, eventually moving across the street to WVEC-TV as assistant news director.
