Hi. I’m Meg, and I like to break things.
I am a New York City-based breaking news producer, reporter and editor, currently available for hire. Most recently, I was on the founding team of Tribune, a Tribune Media-owned news site featuring breaking news and in-depth features (Unfortunately, the project was pulled two weeks before its launch date). Before that, I worked on New York Daily News‘s digital news desk. I anchored the breaking news team’s early-morning coverage, and I reported on everything from the 2016 presidential election (including serious and light-hearted updates) to terror attacks in Paris, Brussels and San Bernardino.
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. I’ve also worked as 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 me 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.
