Megan Elisabeth Valle

Multimedia Journalist

 

About Me

My name is Megan Valle, I'm a multimedia journalist from New York. I'm passionate about telling stories on all formats and have experience reporting for web, radio, and video. I've been published in Newsday, The Press, and on WSHU, Public Radio. I have worked on a variety of beats including politics, music, science, culture, and fashion. I am looking for an opportunity to tell important stories that deserve attention.

I am a motivated and reliable reporter. When I think of a story idea I'm passionate about, I dedicate my life to it in hopes of intriguing the audience and giving them a new perspective. I thrive in a fast pace and creative environment where I can collaborate with colleagues to create multimedia content that's engaging and exciting.
