WJZ general assignment reporter Mike Hellgren came to Maryland’s News Station in the spring of 2004 from KARK-TV, an NBC affiliate station in Little Rock, Arkansas where he worked as a general assignment reporter, as well as fill-in anchor. Solid reporting credentials and a reputation for breaking important news stories characterized Mike’s work both there and at KTAL-TV, another NBC station in Shreveport, La. where he also was a general assignment reporter and fill-in anchor.
He also worked as a reporter/producer/photographer for KLAX-TV, an ABC station in Alexandria, La. and started his career in broadcast journalism with a cable news program called First Edition News in Kenosha, Wisconsin.
Mike holds a B.S. degree in journalism from Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism and grew up partly in Chicago and partly in Louisiana.
