Following 10 years of dedication to ETV 10, Micah Iverson has accepted a new position and will begin a career in Wyoming beginning in October.
Micah was hired by Emery Telcom in June 2008 and was tasked with building a local television station from the ground up. With his degree in broadcasting and journalism from Southern Utah University, he began work on creating a station filled with local content, ranging from politics to high school sports and from talk shows to outdoor segments.
Throughout the years, Micah eagerly sought new ways to improve the channel and its offerings. One of the biggest endeavors he undertook was the creation of live broadcasts on the channel. In 2011, ETV 10 aired its first live sports broadcast. Now, more than seven years later, the broadcasts have grown to include multiple cameras, play-by-play commentary, instant replays and commercials from local sponsors. Micah built relationships with local schools, offering broadcasts to Carbon, Emery, Pinnacle, Green River and Grand high schools. He has broadcast a variety of sports for the schools, including football, basketball, wrestling, volleyball, baseball, softball and swim.
While Micah ran the complete operation for Channel 10, he also managed ETV Channel 6, the local tourism channel featuring the best Southeastern Utah has to offer. He created content, commercials and segments for the channel, while also expanding live sports programming at Grand High.
In addition to his work as the director of broadcast operations, Micah was also instrumental in the start of the ETV 10 news website and newspaper. He spent time editing, writing and photographing for the news entity, focusing on his passion for sports.
Micah, along with his wife and three children, will make their new home in Riverton, Wyo.
The staff at ETV 10 thanks Micah for his dedicated years of service and wishes him the best on his future endeavors.
