Michael Pearce, Editor-In-Chief

Michael Pearce was the sports editor at The Oakland Post for two years, and now is the Editor-in-Chief. Since he was a freshman, he has had an amazing time growing as a person and journalist within the walls of the Post.

His favorite sport to cover, watch and play is basketball, and his favorite team is the Boston Celtics.

Pearce has always loved the big city lifestyle. A senior 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 or The Ringer, using experience in video, radio and writing to make great content.

He also works at WXOU Radio as the Sports Director, after spending a year as the PSA Director. At WXOU, he and his friends Brendan Triola and Nate Bennett host a talk show, "Hot Takes and Mistakes."

Outside of journalism, Pearce enjoys rap and video games. Three of his favorite rappers are Drake, Juice WRLD (RIP) and Roddy Ricch.

This year, he hopes to win more games in IM basketball, because his team is an impressive 1-13-1 in their first three seasons.
