Jimmy Gutierrez

Lake Effect Producer

Jimmy Gutierrez is supporting WUWM as a Lake Effect producer during this busy election year. He joined the staff in April of 2024.

Before joining WUWM, Jimmy was a senior editor for TED’s Audio Collective and managing editor for LWC Studios. He’s also a service journalist who directed the relaunch of the Detroit Documenters program for Outlier Media. His community-based work in Milwaukee was recognized with a John S. Knight Impact Fellowship from Stanford University.

Jimmy grew up on the south side and was raised in MPS schools. He’s a graduate of MATC and UW-Milwaukee, and first interned at WUWM in the summer of 2012. He was also a Milwaukee Firefighter.

Outside of work, you can find him lounging on his porch, listening to a podcast with his cat, Michelle Yeoh, or playing ball at Washington Park.
