Mike Piskorski is a 16 time Emmy award winning photographer and editor for FOX CT.
Unlike most folks in this business, Mike has managed to stay and grow in his home state for the better part of his career.
After graduating from Berlin High and St. Bonaventure University, Mike began his career in Syracuse, NY. There he was a sort of jack of all trades ¿shooting, editing, reporting and producing. After 4 years at Time Warner Cable in Syracuse, Mike returned home, turning his intern days at FOX CT into a full time job as a photographer.
That was 1997 and 6 years later, Mike was promoted to Chief Photographer.
Mike has been on the scene of almost every major story to hit CT in the past 15 years, everything from 9/11, UCONN in numerous Final Fours, Governors and Mayors resigning amid scandal, Hurricanes, Blizzards and everything in between.
He’s most proud of the companionship and teamwork he’s forged with his co-workers and the growth CT 1 Media has made over the years in the Connecticut market.
In October of 2011, Mike was named Director of Integrated Photography for CT 1 Media which includes the Hartford Courant, CTNow.com, Courant.com along with Fox CT and other publications.
Mike was born and raised in Berlin and currently resides, with his wife Tammy and his sons, Nolan and Justin there.
