About Meg

I've been working in newsrooms as an editor, producer, fact-checker and project manager for the past 15-plus years -- on long-term projects, podcasts, investigations and daily and breaking news -- on digital, print and audio teams. My most recent staff job was as a managing editor for regional news and special projects and partnerships in the Minnesota Public Radio newsroom, and I spent two years co-teaching an editing course at the university level.

I stepped back from daily news in the summer of 2021, and am focusing my freelance work on editing (story editing, copy editing, fact-checking, developmental editing, etc.), plus project management, training and coaching. 

I spent the 2022-23 academic year as a Knight-Wallace Fellow at the University of Michigan, studying how best to prepare and support editors and team leaders in small and mid-size newsrooms. I'm building a pilot program to connect editors in public radio newsrooms to peers across the network, that will help them develop coaching skills and hone their editorial and leadership presence in their newsrooms.
