Stories by Mike Arsalides
Mike Arsalides is a videographer for CTV News. Coming from a large Greek family, he dreamed of becoming a broadcaster at a young age. Mike grew up in the Toronto area and graduated from the Radio and Television Arts program at Ryerson University. Mike spent his early years in television working behind-the-scenes in the SportsCentre newsroom as a story editor at TSN and NHL Network. In 2010, Mike realized another childhood dream when he joined CTV Barrie as weekend sports anchor and videographer. In 2017, Mike welcomed a new and exciting challenge; moving to news reporting, covering everything from snowstorms shutting down highways to major court cases and political controversies. In late 2018, Mike took an opportunity to work in the nation’s capital; filing reports for CTV National News as well as live, local and breaking coverage for CTV Ottawa. Mike returned home to Barrie in October 2019 and is proud to continue serving the community on Barrie’s number one local news program, CTV News at 6.
