Investigative reporter Mike Beaudet has been with FOX25 since 1996. He began his career at FOX25 as a general assignment reporter and is best known for his groundbreaking investigative work with Fox Undercover. Mike also anchors the Sunday editions of "FOX25 News at 6 p.m." and "FOX25 News at 10 p.m and 11 p.m."
Beaudet's award-winning investigative reporting consistently gets results. Whether he's going after someone who's breaking the law or exposing shortcomings with our government, Beaudet isn't afraid to ask tough questions and hold people accountable.
Beaudet has won 15 New England Emmys, most recently in 2014 for a series of reports exposing government dysfunction. In 2013, Mike and his team were once again recognized for Outstanding Investigative Report for a composite of stories. One of those reports showed the public, for the first time, video of a disabled student receiving painful electric shocks at the controversial Judge Rotenberg Center.
Beaudet's reporting has also been repeatedly recognized by the Associated Press and the Radio Television Digital News Association. In 2011, he and his team were awarded an Associated Press Award and an Edward R. Murrow Award for investigative reporting for their investigation of a state worker who ran marathons while claiming to be too injured to work.
In 2005, Beaudet and the FOX25 investigative unit were awarded the prestigious Award of Excellence by Mothers Against Drunk Driving, the highest honor given at MADD's National Media Awards for coverage of drunk driving and underage drinking issues.
Prior to FOX25, Beaudet, a Massachusetts native, worked at WMUR-TV in Manchester, NH, and at WLBZ-TV in Bangor, Maine. He has also worked for Urban News Service, covering politics at the Massachusetts State House for radio stations across New England.
