Mike Lamia is a reporter for 11 Connects in Johnson City, TN
Join Mike weeknights at 11pm.
Hello and welcome to my page! My name is Mike Lamia and I’m a multimedia journalist with a passion for telling people’s stories. Everyday I shoot, edit, report and enterprise news stories at WJHL-TV in Johnson City, TN.
The thrill of my job goes hand in hand with the unknown of what each day could bring. One day I could be traveling deep into the mountains, to report on a community that has been snowed in. On another day, I could be standing behind police tape, on the front lines of an investigation. I do have a desk, but my office is the station SUV and the road. There’s no place I’d rather be.
I’ve been at News Channel 11 for one year now. My experience before that comes from working at the student run, AP award winning WEBN-TV in Boston, MA. I was also a news anchor on 88.9 WERS FM in Boston.
Deep down, I love the warm weather. I grew up in South Florida. I earned a Bachelor’s degree in Business Management at the University of Central Florida. Later, I earned my Master’s in Broadcast Journalism at Emerson College in Boston, MA.
You can find me every week night at 11 reporting live from around the region on the day’s top stories. It’ll be hard to find me in the same place twice, but I’d have it no other way. I’ll see you around!
