Producer, NewsChannel 21 at Six

Hello! My name is Megan and I am a News Producer for KTVZ News Channel 21.

In 201,3 I graduated with a degree in Broadcast Electronic Communication Arts from San Francisco State University.  In the Bay Area, I had two amazing internships:  KTVZ Channel 27 in Hayward and KGO-TV ABC 7 in San Francisco.  At both stations, I met incredible mentors that helped guide me to starting this career. 

At KTVZ, I produce the 6 o’clock evening newscast.  My duty is to build the show from start to finish.  I work closely with other producers, reporters and the operations team to create the newscast. And the team I work with is outstanding!

I am originally from Olympia, Washington, so I am happy to be back in the Pacific Northwest.  Bend has more snow than I am used to, but I am not complaining.  My boots and skis are always ready to hit the mountain!
