Michael Seiden is a general assignment reporter for Local 10 News. You can find most of his reports on the No. 1 morning show in South Florida on Sunday through Thursday.
Before coming to WPLG, Michael worked as a reporter at ABC affiliate KOCO in Oklahoma City. While working in the Sooner State, Seiden reported on some of the deadliest storms, including an EF-5 tornado that tore through Moore in 2013. He also chased tornados during storm season.
Prior to Oklahoma City, Seiden worked as a reporter at ABC affiliate KBMT in Beaumont, Texas. One of his favorite stories in southeast Texas was about a police department that didn't have enough money to buy its officers bulletproof vests. His reports caught the attention of a resident who opened up his wallet and bought every officer a vest.
Michael graduated from Arizona State University with a bachelor's degree in journalism. As a student, he anchored the historic 2008 presidential election. He also interned for the Arizona Cardinals, working three seasons, including their 2008 run to the Super Bowl.
Michael is happy to call South Florida home. He enjoys the culture, cuisine and weather.
