Mike Masco joined ABC 2 News as a meteorologist in May 2012.
Where else have you worked and what was your oddest job?
I've worked in New York City and Springfield Massachusetts. My oddest job was probably changing oil for the go-carts on the Seaside NJ pier. I also served as a baker during college at my local bakery, Cravings, in Allenhurst, NJ.
What are you most proud of when it comes to your work?
I am proud that I have the confidence to make a forecast, stand by that forecast, and get the word out earlier than most. You'll find me very confident in my abilities and my team's abilities. Accuracy and first warning is my priority to our consumers (viewers)!
Interesting fact(s) about your personal life?
Hmm.. I'd say I am no stranger to trying something once to see if I like it. Golf, fishing, hunting, biking, Archery, Water Skiing, surfing, wake-boarding, skydiving, this list goes on. I've tried it all at least ONCE.
AND.. I still golf.. and take the crown for the world's WORST golfer. You'll see many of my irons in the woods (thrown out of frustration).
What were you like as a kid?
A maniac. Apparently I liked to pop balloons, couldn't keep still, would never SHUT up, and banged my head into walls? I have no clue what kind of phase I was going through at the time.
What do you love about living in the Baltimore area?
The simplicity. I can go boating...hiking...dining...or catching a ball game all in one day. Everything is right there for us. This is truly the greatest city in the world!
Favorite local hangouts?
Birroteca (when I can get a table) .. and NO that line "Don't you know who I am?" doesn't work :) Sandy Point for a quick tan. La Fitness in Towson (Between newscasts) ...Federal Hill to walk my boy Simms (Beagle)
All-time favorite movie and song? Why?
I am a horror fan. I love to curl up to a nice scary movie! So I'd go .. Classic- John Carpenters' "Halloween". I refuse to watch the remakes from Rob Zombie. Sorry, Zombie fans.
Beast of Burden by the Rolling Stones. Come on.. The music we have no-a-days cannot compete.
