Weekend Morning News Host
A passionate sports and fitness junkie, interviewer and content creator, Mike Arsenault brings his enthusiasm for media to the Global News team as a digital broadcast journalist and morning show host.
Arsenault’s love of sports catalyzed the beginning of his media career. After playing varsity baseball for five years at Queen’s University and Durham College, and obtaining an economics and history honours degree, he played semi-pro baseball in London. While in London, he began writing a weekly column for a local newspaper that provided an insider’s perspective on the season which later led to the publication of his first novel, 60’6”: Balls, Strikes, and Baseball Mortality. After his playing career ended, he joined the Metro News London as a freelance reporter and photographer.
Arsenault made the jump to television in 2013 as an on-camera presenter and field reporter with The Weather Network. He also presented weather forecasts on CBC News Network, CBC Toronto, and CBC’s The National.
He joined Global News in 2015, where he has created, produced and hosted the following series: What’s Your Fitness Age, The Culture of Fitness, Fitness Served Cold and Top Dog. Currently, he produces original content for Global News Weekend and the Global News affiliate network.
In his spare time, Mike can be found on the tennis court in the spring, summer, and fall and thinking about being on the tennis court during the winter.
