Michael Golde is the primary news reporter at KTRS. He can be heard throughout the week covering various newsworthy events around the St. Louis area. Golde’s first reporting assignment at KTRS was broadcasting live during the 2010 midterm elections. Since then, he has covered stories that include severe weather, crime scenes, parades, press conferences, and everything in between. Golde achieved national recognition, specifically within the baseball community, for breaking the story of Jaime Garcia’s 4-year contract extension with the St. Louis Cardinals. Golde was born and raised in St. Louis. He grew up in Olivette and both sides of his family have extensive roots in the St. Louis community. Golde has been a Cardinals fan for as long as he can remember, and his all-time favorite non-broadcasting job was giving tours of the old Busch Stadium. Unfortunately, Golde’s baseball career was cut short following his sophomore year of high school when his coaches discovered that he lacked physical talent. Golde plays competitive table tennis in his spare time. His favorite television shows (in order) are The Wire, The Sopranos, Deadwood, and Mad Men.
Michael Golde is 2010 Broadcast Center graduate. He also attended the University of Missouri and Indiana University. He is a 2001 graduate of Ladue Horton Watkins High School in St. Louis.
