Michael Sheetz CNBC
Sheetz is a CNBC’s space reporter, with a focus on investment and companies building rockets, satellites, spacecraft and next-generation space technologies. He joined CNBC in June 2017 as a News Associate, covering breaking news for CNBC.com. He later became a markets and space reporter in July 2018 before becoming a full-time space reporter in March 2020. He has previously worked at CNBC as an intern, first in September 2015 where he interned for the Strategic Content team. Michael landed two further internships with CNBC, with the Assignment Desk in January 2016 and the Mad Money production team in January 2017. He is an alumnus of the 2016 Dow Jones News Fund.
During his tenure as a space reporter, he has been the first to break news on SpaceX (from fundraising efforts to its valuation to interviews with founder Elon Musk to key launch updates ), Blue Origin (such as Jeff Bezos’ rockets, space tourism, and lunar exploration programs), Amazon ( Project Kuiper satellite plans and personnel ), Rocket Lab (the California & New Zealand-based small rocket builder and their plans to catch and reuse rockets ) Stratolaunch (the world’s largest airplane going up for sale for $400 million), Virgin Galactic (the first spaceflight with a test passenger onboard, as well as my interview with the astronauts just hours after they landed ) and many more

Michael Sheetz SpaceX
In a Reddit Q and A Michael revealed that while he was a breaking news reporter one of CNBC’s “hotseat” editors asked the team if anyone was free to write about “SpaceX trying to launch and land two rockets within 48 hours of each other”. He volunteered to write the stories as he knew about SpaceX. Despite not being an engineer he grew up paying attention to aerospace and knew about SpaceX.
“After that my journalistic curiosity kicked in…I found out how large the industry was and how much money was flowing in from private investors. No one was covering it at CNBC so I just began pitching everything I could! I also didn’t keep it from my interfering with my daily tasks, so my bosses have encouraged me every step of the way.”
