Mike Sobel
Retired Weather Specialist

Mike is the former weather specialist and co-host of Edmonton’s #1 rated Global News Morning. Edmontonians began watching Mike on ITV, now Global Edmonton, since the mid-eighties on shows like Hi Q, Four O’clock Rock, Disney Afternoon and many telethons and New Year’s Eve countdowns.

Mike grew up in Toronto where he attended York University. He spent a lot of time working at the campus radio station which led to his interest in the media. Mike began his radio career in Weyburn, Saskatchewan, then Regina and various stations in Edmonton (CFRN, CJAX, KING, CISN and MAGIC 101). One of his favourite radio memories was taking two listeners on a trip to New York where they attended a Garth Brooks concert in Central Park in front of 250,000 fans.

Mike is married to a fitness instructor and has two adult sons who flew the coup out to the west coast.

He likes to spend his time in the gym, riding his bike, skiing, walking his dog Cozmo and spending way too many hours watching television sports. Mike also supports many community events charities including the MS Society of Canada, the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, the Kids with Cancer Society and the Stollery Children’s Hospital.
