Megan is from Indianola, Nebraska. “From the time I could talk, I was on a stage singing, acting, dancing or giving speeches,” Megan remembers. She loved helping out on the farm and spending time with her Grandma Sina, who was one of the most important and influential people in her life.
Megan always knew she would go to UNL for college, because as she says, “there’s nothing I wanted more than to be a Husker.” After graduating with a degree in Broadcast Journalism, Megan started her career as an editor with Channel 8 Eyewitness News. She then became the weekend weather anchor and photojournalist. About a year later, Megan was then promoted to co-anchor of the morning show.
“I love talking to people and learning new things. I believe it’s important to care about your community and make a difference in it,” and adds that she loves how every day on the job is different.
In April 2016, Megan was promoted to co-anchor of the evening newscasts with Rod Fowler.
All one has to do is look at her resume to see that she likes to stay busy. In high school, she was the Valedictorian, and participated in FFA, FBLA, 4-H, student council, volleyball, basketball, track, choir, band, speech and drama. While attending UNL, she interned with Channel 8 Eyewitness News, worked on the student run news programs: Star City News and KRNU, played club volleyball and made the Dean’s List on multiple occasions.
Megan is a small town girl and proud of it. When she’s not reporting or delivering a weather forecast, she likes to go to concerts, play volleyball, hike mountains in Colorado, go hunting or fishing, and watch sports, especially Husker football & volleyball. She and her husband, Max, have two dogs Reggie & Dennie, who keep them busy!
