An Oregon native, Michael Sevren joined the KEZI 9 News team in May of 2018. Before returning to work in his home state, Michael spent five years working as a multimedia journalist in Casper, Wyoming, at KTWO-TV, and at KIVI-TV in Boise, Idaho.
During his time in Wyoming, Michael worked as the Fremont County Bureau Reporter where he covered the Wind River Reservation and the neighboring communities. Michael was awarded by the Wyoming Association of Broadcasters for Best Photography two years in a row. He also won Best Story for his work on a widow getting back the high school class ring she gave to her husband before he went off to fight in World War II.
In Boise, Michael covered some of the biggest stories to impact that area in recent years. He was one of the first reporters on scene when an armed gunmen shot and injured two Boise police officers and was in the courtroom when the sentence was handed down to a Dietrich High School student accused of a racially-motivated locker room assault. Michael’s work was also recognized by both the Idaho State Association of Broadcasters and the Idaho Press clubs, winning awards for his breaking news live shots and environmental reporting, as well as Best Story for his in-depth report on the age-old sport of falconry.
When Michael is not working, he enjoys riding his bike, taking trips to the Oregon coast and relaxing at home with his cat, Shady.
