Shaun Hegarty

Shaun Hegarty serves as the Investigative Reporter for 13abc Action News.

Each day he digs into stories to uncover government waste, shady practices and changes that will benefit Northwest Ohio as a whole.

Shaun came to 13abc, after his time at Fox Toledo (WUPW), where he served as News Anchor/Executive Producer before the newsroom was closed in 2012. Shortly after that, Shaun joined 13abc.

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.

The Hegartys have a full house at home. Their oldest, Leah, runs the show. Little brother JJ is the enforcer and Nicholas is the baby so he's the current King. If you want to learn even more about the Hegartys, you can catch Sara on 92.5 KISS FM every morning on the Morning Rush.
