Cole joined the 7&4 team in December of 2018 as a multimedia journalist. This is his first opportunity in the news industry and is ready to explore all of northern Michigan.

After spending his childhood in the Bay County region, Cole graduated from Central Michigan University in December of 2018 with a Bachelor of Applied Arts in Broadcast.

While at CMU, Cole worked both on and off-air with Sports Central, The Mountain 91.5 FM and News Central 34. For each of these shows, he did everything he could from reporting, producing and extra jobs around the studio.

During college, Cole interned at MAC TV Network. He hosted and produced his own community sports show called "Sports Attack."

Cole also was a color commentator for Great Lakes Sports Network for 5 years covering high school football in the Bay Region of Michigan.

In high school, Cole spent most of his time playing as many sports as possible (football, bowling, softball and racing quarter midgets). He is welcome to take on any challenge you present to him and promises to beat you at your own game.

While Cole is at home, he loves spending time with his friends, family and his girlfriend from Ecuador, Maria. He is also a huge video game fan. many of the games he plays are EA Sports or 2K. Cole is also a huge NFL fan of the Detroit Lions and the New England Patriots (sorry). He loves rooting for all the other Detroit teams as well even when times are tough. At some point they have to get good right?
