Meredith currently works as a morning producer in Baltimore, WBFF. She also worked in St. Joe. Meredith understands morning news and will be a great new addition to the team. She is also a Mizzou grad. She has family in St. Louis and Denver, so this move gets her closer to family.

Both start on June 12th.
We also hired McKenzie Nelson to work as an MMJ for The Now.
