Shaun Hegarty brings his almost 6 years of experience in Toledo television news to 13abc Action News where he now serves at the Investigative Reporter. Each day, he'll be digging into stories that try to uncover government waste, shady practices and changes that will benefit Northwest Ohio as a whole.
Shaun comes to 13abc, after his time at Fox Toledo (WUPW). He served as News Anchor/Executive Producer when then newsroom was closed in 2012. Shortly after that, Shaun joined 13abc. His duties at Fox Toledo started as a reporter, before eventually moved to the anchor desk.
South Texas was home for Shaun and his wife before Toledo. He was a Weekday Reporter/Weekend Producer for KRIS, the NBC affiliate in Corpus Christi Texas. The highlight of his time there was certainly his ride with the Blue Angels during one of their visits to NAS Kingsville. The rumors of Shaun getting ill during that flight are in fact true.
Shaun is a Philadelphia area native. The Philadelphia Eagles cause most of his heartache, but he will stop at any moment to watch any Philly team.
He's a graduate of Syracuse University with a dual Major of Broadcast Journalism from the SI Newhouse School of Public Communication and Political Science from the College of Arts and Science.
