Meet KY3's Michael Deere.

Michael joined the KY3 team in March of 2018 as the West Plains Bureau Reporter. He comes to the Ozarks after spending two years as a reporter in Paris, Texas for KXII News 12.

Born in Conway, Arkansas, Michael is excited to be reporting in southern Missouri and northern Arkansas. He is a proud alum of the University of Central Arkansas in Conway, where he graduated with a degree in Broadcast Journalism with a minor in marketing.

If you have ever met Michael then you know he loves to talk and meet new people, making this job perfect for him. He enjoys getting out each day and reporting on the news that the fine people of the Ozarks find important.

When Michael is not reporting the news, he is probably on the golf course. Michael enjoys playing new, challenging courses that test his golfing abilities. If he could, he would play everyday. He's excited about all the new courses the Ozarks has to offer.

Michael also enjoys playing and watching just about any other sport you can think of. He is a huge Arkansas Razorback fan and has been for life. His family is season ticket holders for Razorback football. He also enjoys finding new series on Netflix to binge watch, especially the Marvel series and loves watching horror flicks....the scarier the better.

If you see Michael around, give him suggestions on the best places to eat in your area. He loves those good ol' hole in the wall type places that make the Ozarks so unique.
