Megan Cloherty

Megan Cloherty covers breaking news, crime and courts for WTOP.

Megan worked as a local TV news reporter for nearly a decade before venturing into the world of multimedia and radio reporting. She sought the career change, in part, to use her video editing, CMS coding and digital reporting skills learned through earning her Master of the Arts at American University and Bachelor of the Arts at the University of Missouri. Shortly after coming on to work behind the scenes on WTOP’s website in February 2012, Megan made the move back to reporting, turning stories for air and online.

Megan has been honored with a regional Edward R. Murrow Award, a Gracie from the Alliance for Women in Media, was thrice named Reporter of the Year by the Associated Press mid-Atlantic region and her work has also been recognized by Society of Professional Journalist since joining WTOP.
