Michael Turner

Michael Turner


Michael Turner was born in Herrin, Illinois. Like most boys in Southern Illinois, Michael came into the world a full-fledged St. Louis Cardinal fan who would be disowned - even as a small child - if he professed to be a Chicago Cubs fan. Cardinal baseball on the radio was the soundtrack to his childhood. A common complaint in the Turner household was that Michael listened to Jack Buck far more than he listen to his father.
Michael is proud to be a 3rd generation SIU Saluki. He graduated in 1989 with a Bachelor of Arts degree from Southern Illinois University's Radio-Television Department - a famed factory of media talent in the Midwest as well as Nationally. He worked in college as Sports Announcer and Feature Producer at WSIU-FM in Carbondale, IL. He also served as Sports Sales Manager at KTUC-AM in Tucson, Arizona. Fatherhood pushed him away from his media career in a desperate attempt at being a good provider. Later, Michael could be found in a different - but still important - facet of Sports Journalism. He was a bartender at Unicorn Sports Lounge in Tucson. The recent economic downturn prematurely ended that successful career in 2009.
These days you can find Michael streetside near his Tucson, AZ home holding a sign that says "WIll Blog for Food" when he's not providing entertainment for his readers on his own blog The Redbirds Report [http://www.theredbirdsreport.com].
You can reach Michael to express satisfaction, dissatifaction, or job offers at M.Turner@theredbirdsreport.com. Michael is also active on Facebook and on twitter under the unseemly moniker of @stimpy66 [http://twitter.com/stimpy66].
