KTXS Sports Anchor Mike Skow

Mike Skow is the KTXS Sports Director. He is a veteran of both news and sports reporting at KTXS.

He made the transition from news to sports in September 2010. He joined KTXS News as a weekend anchor and reporter in April 2008, and is originally from Tucson, Ariz. He is now the weekend sports anchor and reporter.

Mike started his journalism career at Tucson's ABC affiliate, KGUN 9 News. During his senior year of high school, he shadowed reporters, photographers, producers and editors. Even before he received his high school diploma, he was hired part time.

He received his degree in journalism from the University of Arizona in December 2007. As a UofA Wildcat and a member of the marching band, The Pride of Arizona, Mike says he will forever bleed red and blue!

During the summer of his junior year in college, Mike interned at KOLD News 13. While there, he learned what it takes to be a reporter and anchor. At the end of his internship, Mike was hired to work as an assignment editor and photographer.

He covered local sports and spot news in Tucson, until coming to the Big Country.

Mike was raised on Wildcat basketball and football and is an avid sports fan. He enjoys playing football, basketball and ultimate frisbee. He also enjoys fine arts and was heavily involved in acting, singing and marching band in both high school and college.

"Life is a journey worth enjoying, so why not smile along the way," he says. "I'm excited to tell your stories and learn what makes Abilene amazing."
