Meet Meg

Hi. I’m Meg, and I like to break things.

I am a New York City-based breaking news editor, currently working for CNN. Previously, I was on the founding team of, a never-launched Tribune Media-owned news site, and before that, I worked on the 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 to terror attacks in Paris, Brussels and San Bernardino.

I’m an alum of Digital First Media’s Thunderdome, which delivered high-quality, non-local content to the company’s 75+ newspapers around the country, and I’ve also worked as an editor for NBC News‘s Breaking News and a reporter at

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.

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.

You can  follow my weird life on Twitter and stalk my professional career on LinkedIn. Let’s talk.
