Meaghan Mackey joined the WKRG team in August 2020 and can be seen reporting on News Five This Morning.
Meaghan comes to the Gulf Coast from Redding, California, where she spent two years reporting for KRCR News Channel 7. During her time there she broke live, round-the-clock developments, for the deadliest and most destructive wildfires the Golden State has ever seen.
Originally from Sacramento, California, Meaghan has longed to live in a coastal climate and is thrilled to have the beach in her backyard.
Meaghan graduated from the University of Nevada-Reno with a bachelor’s degree in Journalism.
During her senior year of college, Meaghan circumnavigated the globe with the world’s premier shipboard education program, Semester at Sea. While sailing through the Atlantic, Pacific, and Indian Oceans, she made stops and traveled extensively throughout Europe, Africa, and Asia. Some of her favorite memories include backpacking across the Great Wall of China, visiting the Taj Mahal, and finding the best sushi rolls in Tokyo.
When Meaghan isn’t chasing stories, she enjoys going to the beach, wine tasting, and pilates.
