I knew Mike as a journalism student at Ohio State. He also worked in the School office as a work-study student. He was a hard worker and all-around nice guy. I have followed Mike's career over the years, and was especially pleased when he returned to Columbus to work for NBC4. It was so good to see him doing what he really loved--reporting the news. Mike will be truly missed by all. My sincere condolences go out to Mike's in a loss that came too soon.
I'm a tv 4 news viewer & even when not paying particular attention, when announcement was made that Mike Bowersock was reporting next, I always made sure to listen. I loved to hear him tell his stories. You could sense they were heartfelt & that he gave the story his utmost attention. I admired him greatly & I could sense that he was someone who would be nice to know on a personal basis.
My heart goes out to his family & friends. My prayers are that God will comfort your hearts as only He can in the weeks, months & years ahead.
Mike was one of the best people I had the fortunate privilege to have worked with at WXYZ-TV Funny, witty and most of all a great story teller. You will be missed my friend.
I am heartbroken over Mike's untimely death. I worked with Mike for five years at NBC4. My desk was right next to his. No one could get me to laugh as hard as he could - such a kind, gentle and funny soul. My heart weeps for his wife and children - They meant the world to him. Mike didn't know it, but he served as a mentor to me when I arrived at WCMH as a young, energetic, and, I'm sure, annoying reporter. He continued to serve as a mentor throughout my time there and beyond. It's impossible to recall a memory that involves Mike and not smile. Mike has left a profound imprint on all of our lives. I'll miss you, buddy...
Christinia and family
My thoughts are with his family and friends. I grew up watching Mr Bowersock on the news and his very special ventures he did. He will be deeply missed. His wife, kids, close family and friends you will be in my prayers. God Bless You. R.IP Mr Bowersock
I have always been a fan of Mike. His news stories had his own personal touch. He will be missed by many of his fans here in Columbus. His family and friends will be in our prayers.
My condolences to the family. I was so use to watching Mike do his broadcasting. He will be sadly missed.
I worked with Mike at WKBD in Michigan. I always admired Mike's storytelling talents and great sense of humor. As a co-worker one thing that you knew about Mike was how much he loved his family! At this difficult time it is his family I pray for. Lord please guide his family through these tough days.
I didn't know Mike but enjoyed his work. I hope that their wonderful memories will help his family during this difficult time.
