Mike Ferguson brings experience as a news reporter, political strategist and elected official to “The Eagle’s” airwaves.
He’s worked in television, newspaper, radio and online media. He’s conducted hundreds of interviews over the last fifteen years – from the scenes of breaking news to neighborhood needs to entertainment stars to members of Congress and Presidential candidates.
While taking a break from media, Mike has been a campaign manager, communications consultant and was the National Field Director for former Congressman Bob Barr’s 2008 Libertarian Presidential campaign. He’s also been a business manager in both a small business and large corporate environment.
Before returning to Columbia, Mike served in numerous appointed and elected positions in Grandview, Missouri. He was the city’s chairman of the Transportation Committee, a member of the Planning Commission, an elected member of the local Water District’s Board of Directors and also an elected Alderman.
Mike knows there’s nothing too big or too small to impact our lives. He has a knack for keeping his finger on the pulse of our community and getting to the heart of the issues.
More importantly, Mike is “Dad” to Austin and Amber Ferguson, who are now the fifth generation of Fergusons to call mid-Missouri home.
