Mike Sherry reports for the Heartland Health Monitor team, a reporting collaboration among KCUR Public Media, KCPT Public Television and KHI News Service. He is based at the Hale Center for Journalism at KCPT.
Mike spent the first chunk of his career as a journalistic nomad. He averaged one move a year in the nearly two decades between college and his homecoming in 2003 to work for The Kansas City Star. Journalism has taught him that truth is stranger than fiction. He once covered a story where deputies arrested a groom at his wedding reception for failing to pay child support from a previous marriage.
In his younger days, Mike rode his bike across Iowa and backpacked through Asia. Now, he enjoys spending time with his family.
