Mike Majchrowitz, Fox News Radio’s White House Correspondent, died yesterday after a long battle with cancer. He was 51.
Majchrowitz joined FNC Radio during its early days in 2005. Called “Mac” by colleagues, he traveled the world covering presidential trips and also anchored FNC Radio’s coverage of elections, conventions, and debates. Majchrowitz covered the 2012 presidential campaign and election while battling cancer.
“Mike was an original – a solidly tenacious reporter, a thoughtful anchor and a good man,” Mitch Davis, VP of Fox News Radio, said in a statement. ”He earned the respect of his colleagues for many things, not the least of which was his kindness. From our earliest days he helped Fox News Radio grow into what we are now. His voice was unique, as was his courage. Throughout his struggle, he remained positive and was an inspiration to us all. We will miss him.”
Majchrowitz started his career in the mid 1980s as a local radio anchor and reporter, shifting over to the political beat in the 1990s as a Washington Correspondent at Conus TV and Cox Television. Majchrowitz is survived by his wife and three children. His funeral will be held on Friday September 5 at 11amET at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church in Virginia.
