Michelle O'Neill

WVIK News Editor

Officially, Michelle's title is WVIK News Editor. She does everything there is to do in the newsroom and whatever may be needed around the radio station.

She's a multimedia journalist and serves as Assignment Editor, Assistant News Director, Reporter, News Anchor/Host, Announcer, Board Operator, Producer, Copy Editor, Audio Editor, Web and Social Media Content Producer, Photographer, and Videographer. She also trains interns and new reporters.

In recent broadcast journalism contests, Michelle's work has contributed to WVIK winning many awards for excellence in both Illinois and Iowa (too many to list).

Below, you'll find news stories she's written and produced.


When not working, Michelle snuggles, plays with, and walks her puggle ( see adorable photo to the left), reads, watches TV & movies, spends time with family and friends, crochets, and runs sound or plays drums or at church. 

Petey the Peanut Puggle came to live with Michelle during the flood in 2019. He's an adult rescue dog and an excellent companion!
