Megan Healy is a Bay Area native who gradually made her way down the California Coast and found herself in a dream role on the incredible FOX 5 San Diego team.
She is beyond grateful for the opportunity to be your weather anchor for the 1, 4 and 5 p.m. weekday shows.
Megan graduated from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo (go Mustangs!) with a B.S. in broadcast journalism and a minor in Spanish. After that, she spent three years as the Weekend Anchor and a multimedia journalist at KSBY, an NBC affiliate on the Central Coast. She is most proud of her intensive coverage of 1996 disappearance of Kristin Smart. Megan was featured on Dateline NBC for her reporting on 25-year-old case including coverage of 2021 search warrants, arrests, preliminary hearings, and her exclusive backyard interview with the suspect’s mother.
She’s covered numerous wildfires, storms, elections, and crime, winning several awards including a regional Emmy.
Megan got her love of storytelling and performing from her mom. Together, they produced at-home cooking videos to help families try easy, healthy, kid-friendly recipes in the comfort of their kitchens. Miraculously, they found ways to get even the pickiest of eaters to try, and enjoy, the spoonful of parsley, feta cheese and tomatoes found in her mom’s quinoa salad recipe. Her mom passed away from breast cancer when Megan was 16, but the love and passion for public speaking her mom instilled in her propelled Megan to pursue a career in journalism and TV news.
Megan loves showcasing behind the scenes of TV news and often posts fun, interactive videos on her social media. You might have seen her “prompter test” video where you pretend to read the news as an anchor. She initially introduced it as a playful game, but people from around the world have said it helped them learn English and improve their public speaking skills and she says that is the most rewarding feeling.
News and weather forecasts are a big part of Megan’s life, but so are beach bike rides, Khalid albums, Trader Joe’s grocery hauls, travel, Jay Shetty podcasts, her family, and their dog Cooper. She has an uncontrollable sweet tooth and will never pass up an opportunity to try a new coffee spot.
So please send her recommendations for all things to do/see/eat in San Diego and connect with Megan on Instagram, TikTok, Twitter and Facebook!
