Mike Rush is an eight time Emmy-winning native Texan proud to be working as an anchor and investigative reporter for KXAN.
Over more than 20 years, Mike’s career has led him to Louisiana, Alabama, Missouri and finally back home to Texas.
He’s covered more hurricanes than he can count, reported on big events like the Austin bomber and Ferguson riots and helped many people solve their problems through his investigative reports. His investigation into “hog/dog fighting” directly led to several states outlawing the practice.
His work has been recognized with a number of awards. Mike is particularly proud to have won the Lone Star Regional Emmy for “Best Anchor” and the Mid-America Regional Emmy for “Best Reporter” a record six years in a row.
