As anchor and reporter for Comcast SportsNet in D.C., Michael Jenkins has brought oodles of personality to sports coverage in the area.  With his razor-sharp wit and Billy Madison-esque playfulness, Michael has helped transform CSN Washington into the go-to source for sports wisdom in the tri-state area.  And through his man-on-the-street segments, Jenks has become a cultural touchstone.

Michael joined CSN in September 2004 from KVUE-TV in Austin, Texas, and has since won two Capital Region Emmy Awards. He was named the 2008 winner for Best Sports Reporter and also won in 2005 for Best Sports Anchor. And if you have a memory as vivid as ours, you may recall that he grew an awesome playoff beard during the Capitals’ second season last year.

We spoke with Michael via email, asking him about his special perspective on area sports, the epic ascent of the Washington Capitals, and the genesis of his on-air style.  And because he couldn’t resist,  Michael also dishes on Kate Hudson, Mila Kunis and college French classes. Below the jump, check out our epic interview with Jenks which includes videos of some of our favorite segments he’s done.
