Biography

Michael Gregory Rowe (born March 18, 1962) is an American television host, narrator, and former opera singer. He is known for his work on the Discovery Channel series Dirty Jobs and the series Somebody's Gotta Do It originally developed for CNN. He currently hosts a series produced for Facebook called Returning the Favor in which he finds people doing good deeds and does something for them in return. He also hosts the podcast The Way I Heard It with Mike Rowe, which he describes as "short stories designed specifically for the curious mind plagued with a short attention span". Rowe has narrated programs on the Discovery Channel, The Science Channel, and National Geographic Channel such as Deadliest Catch, How the Universe Works, and Shark Week. He has also appeared in commercials for firms such as the Ford Motor Company.In June 2020, Discovery Channel announced "Dirty Jobs: Rowe’d Trip", four episodes to be aired in mid-July 2020, billed as "part reunion, part road-trip, part look-back-special".

Personal Life

Rowe sang professionally with the Baltimore Opera. He resides in San Francisco, California. In 2016, he was subject to rumors describing his death, leading him to quote the famous line attributed to Mark Twain: "Reports of my death are greatly exaggerated."

Early Life

Rowe was born in Baltimore, Maryland, to John and Peggy Rowe, who were both teachers. He stated in commercials for Dirty Jobs that the show is a tribute to his father and grandfather. He became an Eagle Scout in 1979 in Troop 16 in Baltimore, and he read out loud to students at the Maryland School for the Blind during his service project for Eagle Scout. He cites this as one of the reasons that he became interested in narrating and writing. In June 2012, Rowe was awarded the Distinguished Eagle Scout Award by the Boy Scouts of America.Rowe attended Kenwood Presbyterian Church in Baltimore, which his parents still regularly attend. He graduated from Overlea High School in 1980, where he excelled in theater and singing under choir director Freddie King, whom Rowe credits for his interest in performing. He then studied at Essex Community College. He was named an Honorary Life Member of the Barbershop Harmony Society on July 8, 2017, at the Society's international convention in Las Vegas. In 1985, he graduated from Towson University with a degree in communication studies.
