Bridget Fargen Reporter and Weekend News Anchor bfargen@wjfw.com

Bridget Fargen joined WJFW in August of 2008 as a General Assignment Reporter. In October of 2009, Bridget started anchoring Newswatch 12 Weekend.
Bridget is a Madison, Wisconsin native and has been coming to the Northwoods since she was a kid. Her family has a cabin in Minocqua and before that she vacationed at a friend's cabin in Watersmeet, MI.
Bridget graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee in May 2008 with a degree in Broadcast Journalism and a double minor in Political Science and American Sign Lanugage Studies. While at UWM, she was very involved in UWM Panthervision, the school's weekly newscast. Bridget did two internships while in school; first, at WITI-TV the Fox affiliate in Milwaukee, and later at WTMJ-TV the NBC afilliate. Both internships provided invaluable experience about what the broadcast journalism industry is all about. Last year she had the opportunity to work for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel's Preps Plus where she covered local high school athletics in the Milwaukee area. When Bridget wasn't in the journalism lab, she spent the rest of her time in the pool. She swam three years for the Panthers, before a career ending injury forced her to hang up her suit.
Bridget is an avid sports fan, can regularly be found parked in front of the T.V. watching the Brewers, Badgers, Yankees, Colts and 49ers. She also enjoys shopping, reading a good book, spending time with her friends and family, and traveling. Bridget is excited to be at Newswatch 12 and living in the Northwoods! If you have any questions, comments or story ideas she would love to hear from you!
