The Mike Jurecki dossier includes work in the hat trick of broadcasting mediums - print, television, and radio. He entered the sports media arena in 1996 as a board operator at XTRA Sports 910, the first all-sports talk radio outlet in the Valley, and quickly climbed the ladder into positions of producer, reporter, and eventually talk show host.
Voted by The Arizona Republic as “Radio Reporter of the Year” for 1998 and 1999, he’s hosted sports-talk shows while also served as the regional NFL contributor to Pro Football Weekly Magazine.
The debut of the “Vinny and Skinny” show in July of 1999 and “The Fastest 2 Hours in Sports” reached a pinnacle in the spring 2000 and fall 2001 Arbitron rating book bringing in the biggest numbers of any sports talk radio show in the Phoenix market. Their 1-3p.m. show checked in with a 4.2 and 4.5 share among the target audience of 25-54 year-olds. (Co-host Vince Marotta in 1999, 2000 and Dan Bickley in 2001.)
In the Spring of 2002, Mike served as host of a four-hour talk show with former NFL offensive lineman Bill Lewis, then later in the year served as sideline reporter for radio broadcasts of the NFL Arizona Cardinals, In addition, Mike regularly contributed to the team’s official web site, azcardinals.com, provides a column for the club’s “Cardinal Sidelines” newsletter, and made frequent appearances on FOX Sports Arizona, the local entity for a nationally syndicated cable sports/news outlet.
