Milwaukee Anchor Retiring After 36 years

By Kevin Eck 

WISN anchor and reporter Mike Anderson is retiring from the Milwaukee ABC affiliate.

The station announced the news Thursday night. His last day will be Friday, March 31.

“Mike is a staple of not only this television station, but of the entire community,” said president and GM Jan Wade. “Everywhere I go, people know Mike Anderson. He has an uncanny ability to capture the humanity of each story, and bring clarity to chaotic events. He is a wonderful journalist and storyteller. His talents and expertise, plus his friendship and smile, will be sorely missed in our building.”

He came to WISN in 1981 after working at KIRO in Seattle.
