Mike Garrigan Biography

Mike Garrigan is an American journalist currently working as a News Anchor at 23 WIFR. He joined the station in 2008.

Mike Garrigan Career

He discovered his passion for broadcasting and a way to put his love of sports at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater. His first position at WIFR was as sports director, and he later became a news anchor a few years later. Mike takes his job as a journalist very seriously, describing it as a vital one in the community.

He worked as a play-by-play announcer for the college’s sporting events and hosted a sports show called “On the Ball” while at UW-Whitewater. He also wrote for the campus newspaper. He began a sports broadcasting career after graduating in 1992. He worked at several radio stations before landing at WIFR in 2003. He continued to cover sports for four years before transitioning to his current position as an anchor in 2008.

His first assignment as an anchor was to travel to Springfield, Illinois, to cover then-Sen. Barack Obama’s announcement that he would run for president. Garrigan has been in the news business since then and says he enjoys it just as much now as he did when he first started. Unlike a traditional nine-to-five job, this one is not always subject to the ticking of a time clock. Garrigan is scheduled to work weekdays from 2 to 10:30 p.m., but news can happen at any time, and his schedule has been turned completely upside down on numerous occasions.

Garrigan was called into work on a Sunday, one of his scheduled days off, after a deadly shooting at Don Carter Lanes in Rockford last year. Garrigan has been a news reporter for over 25 years and has yet to have a perfect day.
