Megan Meany joined WNBC’s Today in New York weekday morning team in June 2008 as traffic reporter from 4:30-7:00 a.m. Meany is a member of the Shadow Traffic organization and brings with her their extensive resources and in-depth expertise in covering traffic in the tri-state area.
Meany also brings a new look to the broadcast by reporting live each morning from WNBC’s Studio 7E, instead of from the Shadow Traffic headquarters located across the Hudson River in Rutherford, New Jersey.
Meany has worked in many different capacities within local, cable and network television. Most recently she worked with E! News as a freelance entertainment reporter interviewing A-List celebrities, and at the Style Network covering the New York fashion scene.
Previously, Meany was the host of Help Wanted, a prime time reality show on TLC. She got her on-air start at CBS's Saturday Early Show covering trends.
In addition to her on air work, Meany has 10-plus years experience producing network and local programming.
Meany's interest in journalism started in print as an editorial assistant and reporter for the Boston Herald newspaper. Her bylines included front-page news, the real estate section's "Home of the Week" feature, and a bi-monthly piece on street fashions.
A Connecticut native, Meany attended Trinity College in Hartford where she earned a degree in English along with a minor in women’s studies.
Meany is a fourth generation Irish American and traces her roots back to Co. Clare and Co. Mayo. She resides in Manhattan with her husband and son.
