Gordon Govier - Wisconsin Writer

Fifth generation Wisconsin resident, born and raised in Wisconsin's Driftless Region.
Writer and journalist: passionate about history and the Bible (hence Biblical Archaeology), as well as radio, photography, and cycling.
Early news jobs included delivering the daily Milwaukee Journal on bicycle,
reporting on high school sports for the local weekly newspaper, and radio announcer at the hometown station.

I became a journalist because I had broad interests and a deep curiosity. Whether covering and reporting radio news or writing
online profiles, my priority has always been serving people with information that is interesting, important, and useful.
Trained in journalism at the University of Wisconsin, now based in the Madison suburb of Fitchburg.

Following a career as a radio news reporter and news director I continue to write, report, and edit for a variety of venues,
and recently had articles in the December print issues of both Christianity Today and Radio World magazines. Interestingly,
a few years earlier I had articles in simultaneous issues of On Wisconsin (Winter 2015) and Our Wisconsin (December/January 2016).

Most of my work online recently was done as internet editor and media coordinator for InterVarsity Christian Fellowship/USA.
My current position is grant writer for the International Fellowship of Evangelical Students/USA.
I also write and report on Biblical Archaeology and have volunteered with several professional journalism organizations.


Here are some of my favorite stories among those that I worked on over 15+ years at InterVarsity:
