Meghan Schiller is an Emmy-nominated journalist who joined KDKA in October of 2017. She is thrilled to be back in her hometown and reporting at the station she grew up watching.

Previously, she anchored and reported at the ABC station in Savannah, Georgia.

Meghan is from the South Hills and grew up in Baldwin-Whitehall. She attended Carnegie Mellon University and studied Vocal Performance and English.

Meghan’s love of singing, and her Irish heritage, landed her the title of Pittsburgh’s “Miss Smiling Irish Eyes.” As the queen of the St. Patrick’s Day parade, she appeared as a guest on KDKA’s Pittsburgh Today Live. After the show, Meghan asked about internship opportunities- and the rest is history! Meghan then went on to pursue a Master’s degree in Journalism at Northwestern University in Chicago.

Meghan enjoys singing in the choir, trying new restaurants, working out and spending time with her husband, and two dogs, Jameson and Bailey.
