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.
