Meaghan first stepped in front of the camera at age 10 when she modeled, acted in national commercials, and worked as a reporter for a kids TV news series on WJAR, the NBC-affiliate station in RI. But, Meaghan put this world on hold to pursue her studies and passion for the fashion industry.
Upon graduation from college, Meaghan moved to the Big Apple with a fresh diploma in fashion marketing in hand. From 2007 to 2012, she moved up through the ranks at Condé Nast Publications – not without wearing many hats! She helped grow their world-renowned brands, including Allure, Brides, Vogue, and The New Yorker during a critical time for the publishing industry.
She soon realized she loved the creative and interpersonal aspects of her work, but wanted to combine those with her past on-camera talents. So, Meaghan went to work as a men/women’s stylist for individual clients and much-admired brands like Bonobos and J. McLaughlin, while she honed her TV hosting skills with a media coach and improv classes. Less than six months later, she landed a fulltime position as Co-host of a morning TV talk show in Rhode Island called The Rhode Show. It broadcasts live on WPRI, the CBS-affiliate station and covers news, entertainment, fashion and lifestyle for Southern New England.
In this role, Meaghan conducts interviews in-studio, out in the field and in live satellite interviews, but she also books guests, produces/shoots/writes/edits segments and stories for the live broadcast and web. Additionally, she appears as a Style Contributor on the show, leveraging her expertise in fashion/beauty/DIY, as well as her professional training in floral design.
Many of Meaghan’s hobbies include what she already does in her professional career, like staying up-to-date on what’s trending in entertainment, style and lifestyle news. Additionally, her love for travel and food keeps her busy with planning her next travel excursion and dining experience. It also brings Meaghan much joy to spend her free time working with nonprofit organizations, like Dress for Success Boston and volunteering her time with a variety of local fundraising events.
