About

Michael Patrick Shiels’ personality-based, news making show covers state, national and international politics in a non-partisan manner. Michael Patrick skillfully mixes politics, which he affectionately refers to "as the family business" with news, business, sports and lifestyle topics you're interested in, keeping listeners informed as well as entertained. His inquisitive personality leads to asking newsmakers relevant questions - pointed, but with respect - and recognizes that listening is the most important quality of a good interviewer. “Everyone's an expert at or on something,” explains Michael Patrick, who uses humor and surprises to draw out quality answers and important information. “Every person has a story, and my job is to get guests to the point, while allowing them to express themselves in a genuine manner, in authentic conversation.
