Planet Mikey Bio

Mike Adams
Mike Adams was born in Pittsburgh, PA. and raised in Manchester, CT.  During Mike's high school days at Avon Old Farms, he lettered in Baseball and in Track.  After graduation he attended The Connecticut School of Broadcasting, and broke into radio before the age of 19.  Mike started at WINF in Manchester, CT in 1973 but didn't stop there.  Two years later he moved to the big city to work for WPOP in Hartford and WRCQ for the next two years.  After various stints at WMAS, WHYN & WAQY in Springfield, MA, WLOB Portland, ME, and WCCC & WHCN Hartford, Mikey broke into TV. His television debut came in 1985 at WFSB TV Hartford.  His outstanding talent earned him his own show Sports World at Boston's NECN in 1992 til 1998 which earned him 3 Emmy Awards and Boston's Best Sports Anchor two years straight.  Mike also hosted shows for Classic Sports Network in New York City, as well as WFXT Fox 25 Boston.  But starting at WEEI in 1993 is Mike's most memorable accomplishment paving the way to the one and only Planet Mikey program which was launched in December, 2005.  Mike lives in the Greater Boston area with his wife Christine and his two sons Andy and Will.

Mike Mutnansky @MutWEEI | 8 hours 2 min ago | Correcting last tweet-Red Sox have scored 2 or fewer runs in 19/46 games. Not 20. So only 41.3%. So that's something to feel good about.
Mike Mutnansky @MutWEEI | 8 hours 30 min ago | That makes it 20 times in 46 games the Red Sox have scored 2 or fewer runs. 43.4% of their games. 43.4%. That seems impossible.
Mike Mutnansky @MutWEEI | 8 hours 41 min ago | By far the Red Sox best defensive game of the season. Problem is between the 3rd and 7th innings - managed just a pair of Sandy Leon singles
Mike Mutnansky @MutWEEI | 12 hours 34 min ago | Red Sox/Twins in a rain delay w/ start time 'uncertain.' That means your calls across the Red Sox Radio Network on Sox Talk 617-779-7937
