Mike Rowe has been called the “dirtiest man on TV,” a title he earned while hosting the hit TV series, Dirty Jobs, a show that paid tribute to the many hardworking people who make civilized life possible for the rest of us. On the show, Mike worked as a good-humored apprentice on more than 300 different, unglamorous jobs— from boiler repairman to abandoned mine plugger. On his latest TV series, Somebody’s Gotta Do It, Mike introduces viewers to innovators, do-gooders, entrepreneurs, collectors and fanatics who march to the beat of a different drum. Mike is also well known for narrating documentaries and television shows about everything from lions of the Serengeti to fisherman in the Aleutian Islands.
As CEO of the mikeroweWORKS Foundation, Mike spends a significant amount of time speaking about the country’s dysfunctional relationship with work, highlighting the widening skills gap, and challenging the persistent belief that a four-year degree is automatically the best path to take. The mikeroweWORKS Foundation is a 501(c)(3) public charity that awards scholarships to qualified individuals in pursuit of a career in the skilled trades. The Foundation has been instrumental in granting more than $3 million in education through its Work Ethic Scholarship Program for trade schools across the country
