Nominated for: BEST Sportscaster
Mike Felger was born a cheesehead and a child of the 60's, coming into the world in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, in 1969. He has lived in Boston since the summer of 1988, meaning he has reached the point where he has to be considered a Bostonian. Sorry, Boston.
Felger graduated from Boston University in 1992, three years after taking an internship job at the Boston Herald. Felger remained at the Herald for 19 years, over which time he was a beat reporter and columnist covering the New England Revolution (yes!), the Bruins and the Patriots. Felger moved to full-time electronic work when he took over as host of his own ESPN radio show in 2005. The show lasted three years. He’d like to thank his seven listeners. He’s also currently an anchor for Comcast Sportsnet, the television home of the Boston Celtics.
Felger lives with his wife, the Wood (also known as Fox 25 anchorwoman Sara Underwood), and their daughter in Boston. He’s given up most of the hobbies he used to enjoy, including golf, skiing and reading. He enjoys spending time in places he can’t afford, most notably Nantucket.
