Growing up in Lubbock, Texas, just outside of cotton fields, Megan learned a passion for storytelling. Always writing stories, she went to Texas State University to tell them.
After graduating with a degree in electronic media with a minor in political science from TSU, Megan moved to the mountains. She reported on the topics that matter most to the people in Grand Junction, Colorado at KOLD’s sister station, KKCO/KJCT.
She is excited to join the KOLD team as an MMJ and tell the stories of the desert southwest. Megan’s favorite part of being an MMJ is learning about the people behind the moments she covers.
If she’s not on your TV, Megan is more than likely hitting a trail, training for a race, reading, trying new restaurants or hanging with her incredibly dapper cat, Fitzgerald, that wears a bow-tie.
