He started his career in broadcasting as a staff announcer at the Manila Broadcasting Company in 1969.

He since worked in various positions, as a broadcast reporter, a news editor, program director, and station manager, until he became manager of a medium-sized radio network. He also had stints in other radio networks such as Freedom Broadcasting Radio Network and Radio Mindanao Network (RMN), where he became vice president for the company. He was the man behind the huge success of DWKC 93.9, which stayed in the number 1 spot for so many years before he left in 1995.

He also became a disc jockey known as "Baby Michael" and played a cameo role as a disc jockey in Andrew E.'s 1992 movie Mahirap ang Maging Pogi (It's Not Easy Being Handsome).

In 1994, after leaving RMN, Enriquez joined GMA to head its radio division and expand its radio networks, with only 4 originating stations at that time.

In 1995, Enriquez was convinced by the network to be the anchor, in what would be his first on-cam appearance.

Months later, the network executives called for him to come back; he anchored a 15-minute newscast, in the early evening slot, together with Karen Davila. The late-afternoon news program, entitled Saksi: GMA Headline Balita premiered on October 2, 1995.

In September 1998, he landed his anchor-duties into the late-night newscast GMA Network News with Vicky Morales. Since his first months on Network News, they decided to change the language to "Taglish", and later, changed to Filipino in early 1999.

In January 1999, he returned to radio via Super Radyo DZBB, with his new program based on his former newscast, Saksi sa Dobol B; in August 1999, he returned to Saksi, with his co-host in GMA Network News Vicky Morales.

In August 2000, he hosted the public affairs program entitled Imbestigador; he was later named "Imbestigador ng Bayan".

On March 12, 2004, he left Saksi to re-join Frontpage anchor Mel Tiangco in GMA's then newly-inaugurated primetime newscast 24 Oras.

Throughout his career as a news anchor, he covered numerous events ranging from the EDSA II, the eve of the US Invasion of Iraq, the Funeral of Pope John Paul II, the siege of Marawi, and the aftermath of Supertyphoon Haiyan in Tacloban.

He was named as one of the most child-friendly personalities by the Southeast Asian Foundation for Children and thrice consecutively by the Anak TV Seal awards.

He was also known for his trademark lines in broadcasting such as "Hindi namin kayo tatantanan" (We will not stop running after you) at the end of his reporting on anomalies and other crimes and his habit of excusing himself whenever he coughed or sneezed on air.
