About Michael Feeney
FEENEY, MICHAEL is a cop reporter at The Record, a 150,000-circulation newspaper that covers northern New Jersey. His primary responsibilities include rushing to the scene of a 10-car crash, plane crash or a burning house, just to name a few. Feeney also recently started shooting video for the Web. His most popular video was the capture of a black bear that was on the loose in a quiet suburban town. Feeney, who was born in New York and raised in Teaneck, NJ, graduated with a degree in journalism from Delaware State University. His first job after college was in Detroit, MI, where he worked as a staff writer at the Associated Press. Feeney accepted the job offer to write print and broadcast copy in the “Motor City” after completing a seven-month internship with the AP in Baltimore, MD. While he enjoyed his time at AP, he couldn't pass up the opportunity to do more reporting at his hometown newspaper, which he used to deliver as a child. Feeney enjoys being back in his home state, where he is close to his twin brother and the rest of his family. He is an avid sports fan -- especially the New York Yankees -- and enjoys music, traveling and speaking to high school and college students about journalism as a career.
