Michael White is currently the Associate Athletic Director for Communications at East Tennessee State University, and has worked at the institution for over a decade. During that time, White has overseen all responsibilities of the ETSU Athletic Media Relations office, including management of the Buccaneer Sports Network's radio and television coverage, administration of the program’s ETSUBucs.com website, and working as the primary liaison to all local, regional and national news outlets.

White, who spent seven years as an award winning sports editor at newspapers like the Bristol (Va.-Tenn.) Herald Courier and the Elizabethon (Tenn.) Star before coming to ETSU, is a 1996 graduate of Milligan College, where he played four seasons for the Buffaloes' baseball team. In addition, he earned his Masters degree in Business Administration from ETSU in the summer of 2008.

Beyond his daily duties, White has also acted as chair of the department's Culture of Excellence committee and Social Network Awareness Committee, served on the 2007 ETSU Football Task Force, and is currently a member of the department's Alcohol Awareness Task Force. As a member of the ETSU Campus Communication Team, he also serves a wide variety of public relations roles across the campus.

In the community, White is a past member of the Johnson City Morning Rotary Club, and currently serves as a board member for the Johnson City American Little League, where he volunteers as a manager for a major league level team. He was also a cast member for the 2010 Dancing with the Tri-Cities Stars competition, which helps support the efforts of the SteppenStone Youth Treatment Center just outside of Greeneville, Tenn. He and his family are members of Christ Fellowship Church in Kingsport, Tenn.

A native of Elizabethton and lifelong ETSU fan, White is married to Dr. Sherri L. Smith White. He has two children, a 2-year-old girl named Raina Grace and an 9-year-old boy named Jackson Lee.
