Meghan Kluth is a native Chicagoan and recently relocated to New Orleans to join our team. Her background is in sports broadcast but her passion, is to tell stories and entertain. So WGNO’s “News With A Twist” was the perfect fit.

She attended Boston University and graduated with a degree in communications. She got her start reporting in her hometown covering the 2013 Stanley Cup Finals and being a life-long Blackhawks fan, she was hooked. Most recently she reported for Comcast Network and MLB.com in Chicago.

She has a knack for finding your typical story and turning it into an entertaining piece with her unique style of interviewing. Several of her stories have been featured on national outlets such as Huffington Post, and Yahoo.

Fun fact: she had only been to New Orleans once, for 5 hours, before accepting the job. But already feels at home as a sports fan and foodie. Meghan plans to cheer for the Saints this season. In her free time, she likes to play hockey with her dad, experience New Orleans and catch up with family and friends.
