Hi. I’m Meg, and I like to break things.
I am a New York City-based breaking news producer, reporter and editor, currently working on New York Daily News‘s digital news desk. I cover real-time national, international and viral news. Sometimes that means calling cops to confirm the details of a mass shooting or tracking tweets about an overseas terror attack. Sometimes that means writing finding a lighter approach to the 2016 presidential campaign. I’m especially passionate about politics, technology and weird Florida news.
Previously, I was a breaking news producer for Digital First Media’s Thunderdome, which delivered high-quality, non-local content to the company’s 75+ newspapers around the country. Before that, I was an editor for NBC News‘s Breaking News and a reporter at ABCNews.com.
I was named a 2013 Carnegie-Knight News21 reporting fellow, and I spent a summer reporting on post-9/11 veterans in Phoenix. That was after I graduated from from the University of Florida with a Bachelor of Science in Journalism — summa cum laude and all.
I am also an active member of the Society of Professional Journalists. I’ve served as the University of Florida chapter president and as a student representative on the society’s national board of directors.
When I’m not in the newsroom, you can find shopping Lord and Taylor’s latest shoe sale, waiting in line for trendy baked goods or wandering around the Museum of Modern Art for the gazillionth time. I love em dashes, dogs and TALKING IN ALL CAPS.
