MacLeod Hageman

MacLeod is an Emmy® award-winning journalist, and he’s excited to make central Illinois his new home. The native Montanan comes to Champaign by way of Arkansas, Iowa and Indiana.

Mac will be co-anchoring alongside the talented Christie Battista on WCIA’s Morning Show, and he’s also looking forward to putting his reporting experience to good use.

Mac even had the opportunity to interview presidential candidates during the 2016 election, he uncovered state funding flaws for rural school districts in Iowa, and his team won an Emmy® for Best Evening Newscast while he reported breaking news on a series of fires.

However, Mac isn’t all business. When he’s not working, he enjoys water skiing, working out, playing basketball and spending time with his Scottish Terrier, Rupert. Mac loves interacting with people, and if you have a story idea or an anonymous tip to share, he would love to hear from you.
