Michael Walter joined the WMBF News team as a general assignment photographer in January of 2009. Growing up in Florida and graduating from the University of South Florida, Myrtle Beach was the perfect place to call home and stay near the ocean. Through the years Michael has moved up to the role of Chief Photographer.
As Chief Photographer, Michael spends most of his time working on our special projects and with the investigative team. His work has been recognized with various journalism awards, including an EMMY in 2016 for a series looking into illegal money laundering operations in Myrtle Beach. With a background in sports, Michael loves covering football and being trackside for the Southern 500.
Outside of work Michael can be found spending time with his wife, Meteorologist Marla Branson and their two children.
