This vendor provides virtual services
For 15 years, places like Amazon, Guinness World Records, the New York Mets, and plenty more have trusted me to deliver speeches on national television, host conferences, and serve as the public face of their brands. I've spoken in front of groups as small as 5 and as large as 50,000; ranging from grade school assemblies to national marketing symposiums, bar trivia nights to weddings. You're in the best hands with me, so I want to make your event the best it can be!
Mike Janela was the host at my daughter’s wedding and we can’t say enough good things about him. He was professional, personable, attuned to the rhythm of the day, and somehow was always one step ahead of us. He went above and beyond his duties as an emcee. If a glitch occurred, he somehow appeared to help iron it out. We highly recommend Mike to host any type of event.
Mike did an amazing job creating fun and engaging games for our bday dinner party. I would strongly recommend him to anyone looking to have some fun at an event.
Mike was definitely the greatest host we could have possibly asked for! Not only did he do a stellar job with hosting the event, keeping everything running smoothly and kept the pacing nice and even, but he was also happy to help plan the event! We had an unfortunate situation that caused us to lose a team member (the one planning the whole event), so we were definitely in trouble! Mike stepped in and gave his expertise in trivia shows, helped us create a new plan, and the night was a GREAT SUCCESS!! If I could give more than 5 stars, I absolutely would not hesitate to do so. Any event would greatly benefit from his fantastic personality, great sense of humor and expertise in entertainment! Thanks again, Mike! We couldn't have done this without you!
Response from Mike Janela Hosting:
Thank you so much! Had a great time myself at a great venue.
I hired Mike as an Emcee for my wedding and he absolutely killed it! He totally listened to my 'wants' and followed through on everything! I am not a fan of someone who talks through the whole wedding and he totally understood that and was on point on when to chime in!! Highly recommended!
Thank you so much, Mike! I will be sending your name over to any friends I know getting married :)
If I could hire Mike Janela for every gig- I would!! He’s the best host I’ve ever worked with. Not only does he come prepared but he’s extremely quick on his feet and never ever cracks under pressure. Total rockstar.

What to Expect
The biggest benefit to hiring me is you don't have to worry. I'm happy to provide references, but no matter who you speak to that I've worked with, you'll hear that I'm unflappable, charismatic, and a consummate professional in every sense.
Hosting/emcee services I provide include: business conferences, interviews, commencements, school assemblies, workshops, year-end parties, galas, awards shows, moderated panels, product launches, pop-ups, and any experiential activations.
I'm far from a stuffy, middle-aged emcee that'll put your group to sleep. I pride myself on my energy and relatability: after hosting an event once, I had one guy come up to me and say he felt like grabbing a beer sometime, an older woman ask me if she could set me up with her granddaughter, and the videographer inquire as to whether I could host her other group's next event.
So no matter who you are or what you need: if it requires somebody to command a room, I'm your guy.
I'm a polished host and presenter that's currently the gameday stadium host for the New York Mets and an on-air correspondent for MSG Networks. I've traveled the world as a television spokesman and judge for Guinness World Records, hosted my own daily talk show on FOX Sports, and anchored digital segments for Amazon, Billboard News, and The Hollywood Reporter, among others.
So -- I'm pretty good on a microphone, in front of a camera, or speaking to a room full of people! When it comes to live events, I've emceed conferences, assemblies, and product launches for a variety of groups, ranging from Gillette and the San Diego Padres, to the Global Market Development Center and National Basketball Strength Coaches Association. Not to mention Guinness' school assembly program and tons of birthday parties and weddings -- kids and grandmas love me!
I'm relatable, accessible, and fit in with any group or event. Having been to 42 countries and 49 states (not to mention living in four of those countries and seven of those states), I'm the perfect personality to blend in with anyone and make your event go off the best it ever has. Oh, and I LOVE mozzarella sticks.
Additional Booking Notes
I'm an adaptable emcee who can discuss what technical set-up your event has and we can work from there.
