Hi! My name is Rachael O’Neil and I’m a Reporter at the best station around!

I love being a part of the New Orleans community—it truly is one of a kind. I’ve lived in about seven states and countless cities but I’ve never been to a place like NOLA. I’m loving every minute of it. You never know what you’re going to get in a city like this, and to me, that’s the best part. From live bands to soul food, New Orleans has a way of making me feel right at home.

I report on all things NOLA but I have a specific love for sports. You might catch me filming a charity event or riding the Mystic Krewe of the Seahorse in Bay St. Louis; I have a ball doing what I love. I get to capture real-life moments that last for years to come and I think that’s what I love most about my job.

I’m super active. I love to workout, go bowling, and indoor rock climbing. But you won’t catch me hiking or camping in the woods, I’m not much of an outdoors person.

I love to eat… well anything but beans and pickles (although I hear red beans and rice are one of NOLA’s signature dishes). Seafood and breakfast food are my favs!

Anyway, if you have a story idea, want to report something, or just want to chat, please email me at roneil@wgno.com! You can also follow me on Instagram at msoneil.
