👋🏻 Hi, I’m Michael.

Michael Geheren is a 📱 digital content producer for NewsNation on WGN America.

the latest from newsnation:


I’m excited to be back home in the Chicago area.

Michael Geheren reporting for Scholastic News at the 2008 Republican National Convention.

I got my start in journalism in middle school. First reporting for a local park district newspaper, then for the Scholastic Kids Press Corps (here is my bio back then). In high school I was the first digital editor for our school newspaper.

Previously, I spent nearly five years at KELOLAND Media Group, South Dakota’s #1 website and CBS affiliate covering South Dakota, northwest Iowa and southwest Minnesota. The last position I held was a digital reporter, but spent time as an evening news, digital and investigative producer.

I graduated from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communications at Arizona State University with a B.A. in media studies. (And that’s the way it is.)

I have a dog, two cats, I love to read (here’s what I am reading right now) and write. My favorite thing in life is to ✈️ travel!

Please connect with me. Also, here’s a look at my resume.
