Megan Healey is the weekend anchor for abc27 News. She joined the team in October 2008 as the first reporter assigned to the station's Chambersburg Newsroom. But after two years covering Franklin and Cumberland counties, Megan made the move to Harrisburg where she now anchors the Saturday and Sunday evening newscasts, and reports during the week.
Megan has a passion for breaking news and has covered several big stories during her time at WHTM, including the Jerry Sandusky scandal and trial. She also reported from Shanksville, Pa. when Osama bin Laden was killed by U.S. forces. Megan has been nominated for two regional Emmy awards and in 2013, Megan earned "1st place feature" from the Pa. Associated Press for a special series she enterprised on a National Guard soldier who donated her liver anonymously to a dying Vietnam veteran.
Megan began her on-air career an hour down the road as a reporter at WHAG-TV in Hagerstown, MD. Prior to coming there, she learned the ins and outs of local news as an associate producer at WJZ-TV in Baltimore.
The Upstate New York native graduated Cum Laude from Cornell University with a B.S. in Communications, and a concentration in Government. Megan also played midfield for the Big Red women's soccer team. She attributes much of her tenacity as a reporter in the field to her intense training as a Division I athlete!
In her spare time, Megan enjoys reading, trying new restaurants and spending time with her two dogs. She also coaches girls youth soccer and is a member of the Harrisburg Social Media Club. She is always excited to hear from viewers with feedback or story ideas, so keep those emails coming! You can follow Megan on Twitter.
