Bennett Haeberle is an Emmy-winning journalist who serves as the Chief Investigative Reporter with 10TV. Bennett is thrilled to be here and excited to have the privilege to cover central Ohio.
Prior to joining 10TV, Bennett worked in Indianapolis at WISH-TV as an investigative reporter and fill-in anchor. His investigations have uncovered waste, fraud and abuse. He helped expose how the state of Indiana failed to provide timely information to local emergency responders about dangerous oil transports by rail. He also uncovered millions of dollars’ worth of missing medical equipment from the VA; exposed questionable care for adults with mental disabilities and conducted several investigations into the state’s opioid crisis – including how the state of Indiana inconsistently punished addicted nurses and turned a blind eye toward an underground needle exchange before lawmakers voted to actually legalize them. Bennett’s work has prompted legislation in both Congress and the statehouse.
A Kentucky native, Bennett also spent seven years at WDRB-TV in his hometown of Louisville as an anchor/reporter where he covered local and state government. He began his news career at WTVQ-TV in Lexington, where he was part of a reporting team that received a national Edward R. Murrow award for their coverage of a commercial plane crash. He’s also been honored with Emmy awards and numerous first place awards from both the Kentucky and Indiana AP and the Society of Professional Journalists.
Bennett and his wife Sarah are excited to call Columbus their new home. In his spare time, Bennett enjoys swimming, running, biking, playing the guitar and reading to his daughter. (He’s also recently taken up teaching himself to play the ukulele).
