10 News First Perth
Michael Schultz has presented the weather on Perth’s 10 News First for over 20 years.
He brings viewers Perth's most detailed weather segment based on information collected from the Bureau of Meteorology.
Michael's media life started in 1985 when he joined the ABC as a Trainee Rural Reporter in Sydney. This led to a radio and television career covering three states and three decades with postings in Newcastle, Mount Gambier, Geraldton and Perth.
Michael worked on some of Western Australia's longest running and popular radio programs including ABC Perth's Breakfast and Evening shows, The Country Hour, Corrugation Street and Beyond the Bitumen. The latter two programs were created by Michael to bring country issues to a city audience.
Television weather became part of Michael's ABC duties in early 1988 and he made the move to Network 10 in January 1998.
Michael’s love of all creatures great and small often sees him reporting the weather live from the RSPCA where he assists in finding new homes for abandoned animals. He is also a representative on the Perth Zoo Animal Ethics Committee.
Michael stays fit by riding his bike to work every day where he gets an opportunity to experience the weather of the day first hand.
Michael is married and has two adult children.
