Sam is a 20+ year veteran broadcaster and served as FarPoint Media’s executive news director for 2 years and Slice of SciFi content producer starting with its inception in March 2005. Sam helped to build the on-air and website news program and team of international reporters and contributors from the ground up making Slice of SciFi one of the premiere sites and shows for all news sci-fi and genre related.
In November 2008, Sam stepped down as FarPoint Media Executive News Director and Slice of SciFi Content Producer and went into semi-retirement, posting breaking space news, Star Trek news and managing poll questions until November 2011, when he leapt joyfully into full retirement. However, his love of scifi was something he couldn’t retire from, and he returned to be a consulting editor in 2013.
Michael Hickerson first discovered sci-fi on a UHF station’s Friday night Sci-Fi theater and has been hooked ever since. He grew up on Star Wars, Buck Rodgers and the original Battlestar Galactica, before finding the two great sci-fi loves of his life, Star Trek and Doctor Who. Michael is an avid reader, not just of sci-fi and fantasy but all genres. In his spare time, Michael blogs and spoils his niece and nephew.

News Team Field Reporters Needed
Slice of SciFi has a few field reporter openings available.
We need game enthusiasts who keep up with the latest gaming news, and are interested in providing game reviews;
We need comics enthusiasts who can help keep up with the latest comics news from both mainstream and indie publishers;
We could use a few more people willing to submit reports from the scifi and horror conventions they attend, and the news they may learn there;
And we can always use more in-house movie, television and DVD reviewers.
