There are few things that get Michael Quander excited than a great story.
An avid listener, he would spend hours hanging on his grandfather’s every word as he would spin a tale of a fantastic adventure or recount an interesting time in his life.
So, from an early age, Michael began perfecting the craft of telling a good story. That is just what he hopes to do here in Memphis, Tennessee.
Born in Washington, DC and educated at Morgan State University, Michael earned his Bachelor’s degree in Telecommunications with a concentration in Broadcast Journalism.
From the very first time setting foot on campus, Michael began developing relationships with people in the craft he hoped one day to claim as his own.
He served as Vice President of Broadcast and was an active member of the student and professional chapters of the National Association of Black Journalists.
He interned and then became employed while in school at the ABC affiliate – WMAR-TV in Baltimore, Maryland.
For two years he was an Assignment Editor, Associate Producer, and created exclusive reports for the station’s website.
Michael is motivated by the challenges of work and has a deep desire to hear your stories, to see your lives and incorporate them into the daily newscasts at WREG-TV News Channel 3.
