Caleb Michael joined the NewsWatch 12 team in June of 2021.

He was born in Hayward, California and grew up in the Bay Area for his whole childhood.

Caleb was recruited to play soccer at Oregon State University in 2015 and played for the Beavers over 3 seasons before deciding to step away to pursue other passions. Upon graduation in 2019, he announced his enrollment in the University of Southern California’s Annenberg School of Journalism and Communication for his master’s degree.

He spent two years at USC where he fell in love with journalism and the art of storytelling, which he says is the career he was made for.

When he is not at work, you can find him exploring local spots and meeting the great people of Southern Oregon.

Caleb is excited to be back in Oregon and looks forward to experiencing all that this community has to offer.
