Mike DeNardoMike DeNardo, a veteran of KYW Newsradio for more than 25 years, covers a broad array of news stories for KYW. He specializes in stories about education and the schools.

DeNardo has won the prestigious Edward R. Murrow Award three times — in 2008 for his series on Philadelphia’s school dropout crisis, in 2005 for his coverage of “The Smarty Jones Story,” and in 2000, along with KYW Newsradio colleague Tony Romeo, for the stadium series “Where To Play Ball.”

Mike achieved a lifelong dream in 2008 when he called the final out of the Phillies’ World Series championship for KYW Newsradio.

Each year from 2002 to 2005, he won first-place awards from the Pennsylvania Associated Press for his public affairs, sports, and feature reporting.

Throughout 1999, DeNardo prepared a year-long series of reports on the Year 2000 computer bug entitled “Countdown Y2K.”

In 1986, he was awarded an honorable mention by the Associated Press for his coverage of the 69th Street train crash.

During his radio career, DeNardo has worked as a reporter and anchor for WSSJ in Camden and WIIN in Atlantic City.

A South Jersey native, Mike attended Edgewood Regional Senior High School. He has a journalism degree from Temple University.

In addition to his reporting and editing duties for KYW Newsradio 1060, Mike is a member of the board of governors of the Philadelphia Sportswriters Association. He was association president from 2006 to 2008.

DeNardo is an avid softball player and still-budding violinist. His secret desire after his journalism career is to become a roadie for the rock band Kansas.

Mike and his wife Barbara have two rescue cats named Fenway and Wrigley.
