Mike Manzoni

Mike Manzoni joined the WSPA-TV news team in November 2013 as a Spartanburg-based reporter.

Before heading to the Palmetto State, he spent two years at KRIS-TV and KZTV, the NBC and CBS duopoly in Corpus Christi, Texas.

During his time in the Lone Star State, he uncovered dozens of sex offenders legally living near local elementary schools, investigated food stamp fraud in South Texas, exposed a local tanning salon for not following the law and uncovered issues with a city ordinance that made it difficult for city leaders to demolish dilapidated buildings.

He also traveled to West, Texas, where he filed reports on the aftermath of the fertilizer plant explosion that made national headlines.

Manzoni began his career as a general assignment reporter at FOX affiliate WFXL-TV in Albany, Ga., where he covered a variety of beats, including politics, crime and education.

He has also interned at both local and national media outlets, including ABC News, where he was assigned to 20/20 and Primetime; WCVB-TV, Boston's top-rated station, where he wrote for NewsCenter 5; WBZ-TV, the CBS owned-and-operated station in Boston, where he worked at the assignment desk; and FOX News Channel, where he worked as a guest booker for the network’s online programming.

In 2013, the Lone Star chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences recognized him with an honorable mention in the reporter craft achievement competition.

He has also been the recipient of a Mark of Excellence Award from the Society of Professional Journalists and was part of a team recognized by the New York State Associated Press Broadcasters Association for "Best Regularly Scheduled Local News Program," for his work on WRHU-FM’s newscast, "Newsline."

In addition, he was twice awarded the Patricia A. Dyon Endowed Memorial Scholarship in Broadcast Journalism.

Manzoni, a New England native, earned a bachelor's degree in Broadcast Journalism and Political Science from Hofstra University in Hempstead, N.Y.
