Career

Originally from Milwaukee, Felger graduated from Boston University in 1992. Upon graduating, he worked as an intern with the Boston Herald. He later joined the paper on a permanent basis and became the lead reporter for the Boston Bruins from 1997 to 1999. He left the beat after calling the owner a thief and Jeremy Jacobs threatened to sue the Herald.http://www.bostonmagazine.com/2007/11/charlie-in-charge/ He then became their New England Patriots beat columnist, a position he held from 1999 to 2008.

Felger also hosted a sports talk radio show called The Mike Felger Show on 890 ESPN. The show ran from 2005 to 2008, at which time Felger left at the end of his contract. He moved on as an online columnist and fill-in host for Boston sports radio station WEEI while continuing his television work on Comcast SportsNet New England. Felger began to host an afternoon drive-time show with Tony Massarotti on 98.5 The Sports Hub upon its launch in August 2009.

Personal life

Felger has lived in Boston since 1988 and currently lives in a Boston suburb, Wellesley, with his wife, FOX 25 television anchorwoman Sara Underwood and their daughter, Emma.

Always considered a controversial sports reporter, on October 12, 2011, Felger was involved in an online feud with Heidi Watney, another local reporter, in which he claimed Watney had an affair with then Boston Red Sox catcher Jason Varitek. Watney responded via Twitter by questioning Felger's work ethic and integrity, and most media critics reprimanded Felger for being unprofessional.
