The Oakland Post

Michael Pearce
Michael Pearce has been the sports editor at The Oakland Post for two years. His favorite sport is basketball, and his favorite team is the Boston Celtics.

Pearce has always loved the big city lifestyle. A junior in the journalism program at Oakland University, he hopes to live in a big city as a prominent sports journalist as he progresses further into his career. His dream is to work for a big media company like ESPN, but the lifestyle of a writer for major websites like Sports Illustrated or The Ringer is appealing to him as well.

In 2017, Pearce was named the best multi-platform journalist in the state of Michigan by the Michigan Interscholastic Press Association.

Outside of journalism, Pearce enjoys rap music and video games. Three of his favorite rappers are J. Cole, Juice WRLD and Snoop Dogg. This year, he hopes to finally catch up on today’s music, because somehow he is always months behind new releases. He says it isn’t intentional, it’s just a law of science.
