Michael "Mike" Fletcher is a general assignment reporter at The Baltimore Sun.



Mike Fletcher is a general assignment reporter for the Metro desk of the paper.[1] He is often called Fletch. He is a talented writer but sometimes struggles to submit his work in time for deadlines.[1] Fletch has a relaxed approach to his work and a sometimes flippant attitude.[1] While he is still young he is savvy enough to know that a victim's background is more important than good writing in getting a murder story on the front page.[1]
