Mike Katrycz joined CHCH as News Director in 2001 and became Channel Zero’s first Vice President of News in 2011. He is responsible for the overall editorial direction, staffing and formatting of all news and information programming.
One of Mr. Katrycz’s first initiatives after arriving at the station was the creation of Morning Live. The program became instantly vital and popular throughout Hamilton, Halton, Niagara and beyond, and remains the region’s “go-to” morning show more than 20 years later.
Mr. Katrycz has also led the creation of other news, sports and talk programming, and expanded the station’s footprint onto digital platforms. As the market leader, the CHCH team produces more than 25 hours of original weekly television news.
Mr. Katrycz’s credentials were built upon two decades of news reporting at CTV Toronto and 680 News, and producing Global Toronto’s flagship local newscast.
