Michael Riedel Biography

Michael Riedel is an American broadcaster theatre critic and columnist. He is now the co-host of “Len Berman and Michael Riedel in the Morning” on 710 WOR in New York City, weekdays 6-10 am.  Michael has been a controversial and influential Broadway columnist of the New York Post, for over 20 years.

Michael’s book Razzle Dazzle: The Battle for Broadway won the 2015 Markfield Prize for arts writing.  It is widely considered to be the successor of The Season, William Goldman’s classic 1967 book about Broadway. Currently, he is researching his second book. Michael’s skewering of Broadway shows and personalities in his column has made him a controversial and often feared figure on the New York theater scene. He has been called “the enfant terrible of the New York press”.

He was born on December 24, 1966. He is 54 years old.

Michael Riedel Education

Initially, Michael enrolled at Johns Hopkins University but transferred after a year to Columbia University. During his time at Columbia, he acted in plays and regularly appeared on a radio show devoted to musical theater.

He graduated magna cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa with a BA in History in 1989.

Michael was born on December 24, 1966, and grew up in Geneseo, New York. His father was the athletic director for SUNY Geneseo and his mother was a grade-school librarian. At 12, he joined the Young Republicans and originally planned to become a lawyer and politician. He was picked on quite a bit for being the small guy and the intellectual,” his sister says, adding that he “always used his verbal ability to beat someone at their own game, whether teasing or bullying.”

Michael Riedel New York Post

Since 1998, Michael has been the theater columnist for the New York Post and is the most influential Broadway columnist in the United States. Riedel co-hosted the PBS-TV show “Theater Talk” for 24 years, and he is the author of The New York Times bestseller “Razzle Dazzle: The Battle for Broadway.”

Since 2011, Riedel has been a regular guest on Imus in the Morning. His radio resume also includes National Public Radio, the BBC, and guest hosting for WOR’s Mark Simone. He also played himself on several episodes of “Smash”, the NBC-TV series about Broadway, with Katharine McPhee, Debra Messing and, Anjelica Huston.

After graduating from Columbia, Michael served as Managing Editor of the now-defunct TheaterWeek magazine, which he attempted to make more literary by hiring highly respected theater figures such as critic Eric Bentley to write articles. He was hired as a gossip columnist for The Daily News in 1993 and subsequently launched his now-famous column reporting the latest news and speculation about the Broadway theater scene

Len Berman And Michael Riedel In The Morning

Michael is the co-host of “Len Berman and Michael Riedel in the Morning” on 710 WOR in New York City, weekdays 6-10 am. Riedel and Berman provide tristate listeners with a four-hour variety show, showcasing the most important stories of the day to New Yorkers, including local news, entertainment, humor, political stories, and interviews with newsmakers and celebrities.

In view of his notorious reputation as a theater columnist, Michael was referred to as a “Napoleonic little Nazi” in the premiere episode of the NBC musical drama Smash on February 6, 2012.

Michael Riedel Theater Talk

In the majority of Michael’s columns in the last few months, he has clearly shown a vicious contempt for Hamilton. I’m not saying Hamilton should be immune from any sort of criticism in any fashion, but his comments seem to be coming from something of an irrational place.

Michael Riedel David Leveaux

In 2005, Michael was the subject of considerable press himself when he was in an altercation with English director David Leveaux at the Manhattan theater hangout Angus McIndoe. Michael, who later admitted to being “tipsy,” insulted David by claiming that English directors often ruin classic American musicals. While rumors circulated that David hit Michael so hard that the columnist had to go to the emergency room, the truth is that Micheal was merely shoved to the floor and was not injured.

His estimated net worth ranges from $1 Million – $5 Million (Approx.).
