WXMI-TV (Grand Rapids) has announced that Max Goldwasser has joined the station as Reporter/Anchor. Goldwasser, a four-time award-winning journalist who comes to West Michigan from KTVZ-TV in Bend, Oregon where he spent three years “doing just about everything” in front of and behind the camera. He organized and hosted two weeks of Olympics content, covered Oregon’s historic wildfire season in 2020 and created two original shows to engage with the community during the pandemic.
His on-screen experience and passion for storytelling began well before his journalism career. He grew up just north of Los Angeles in a community that had a 99-seat theater. Max performed in plays and musicals and offers his sincerest apologies to those who endured his singing. Later, he transitioned into screen acting, auditioning for commercials, television shows and movies.
After watching SportsCenter on ESPN every night throughout middle and high school, he fell in love with the world of broadcasting and wanted to make a switch. Goldwasser attended the University of Southern California, where he studied Broadcast & Digital Journalism with a Sports Media Minor.
