Mike LaMarca is Director of Chaser Operations and Administration for Chasing News. You may recognize him on set as the quiet guy at the computer.
While most of his work goes on behind the scenes, Mike occasionally gets out of the office to chase stories of his own.
Generally these assignments involve baseball or pork roll, but he also played an instrumental role in an investigation that led to the political implosion of Assemblywoman Linda Stender.
Mike started his career in radio -- first at ABC News, followed by a brief stint with the short-lived startup FM News -- but realizing that he had hair for television, Mike decided to make a change.
He is an original member of the Chasing News crew -- he even painted the newsroom and built the office furniture.
A lifelong resident of the Jersey Shore, Mike lives with the real star of Chasing News: his puggle, Lola.
