Henderson, Michael Howard was born on August 30, 1958 in Dallas, Texas, United States. Son of Ralph Howard and Barbara Ruth Henderson.

Originally purely a sportswriter, he has since diversified into a wider range of cultural journalism. He began his career writing for various local newspapers, initially covering Rochdale F.C. In 1999 he moved to The Daily Telegraph as cricket correspondent, before joining the Daily Mail as a general sportswriter in 2002.

He has contributed sporting and general commentary to The Daily Telegraph, and for some time had a sports column on Thursdays and a more general column on Saturdays, but he ceased to regularly contribute to the Telegraph in April 2008. He has continued to contribute occasionally to the other papers he previously worked for, as well as The Wisden Cricketer and The Spectator. Henderson has also freelanced for The Guardian and The Observer.

Henderson contributed to a phone in discussion on 'The Tony Livesey Show' on Radio Five Live on August 21, 2012 about Kevin Pietersen, where his input was noted for the brevity of response, and emotional interruptions, as well as describing people who do not watch cricket from 'The MCC Presidents box' as 'Riffraff'.
