MEGAN M FINNERTY


I am a professional listener. Who loves to talk. It's complicated.

Dave Seibert/The Arizona Republic

i'm a reporter and storytelling consultant.

I write and Talk About feelings. A lot.

I report on issues of identity as seen through the lenses of fashion, food and drink, relationships, and the pursuit of idle pleasures.

In 2015, I was named by Editor & Publisher as one of 25 under 35 legacy newsroom leaders. In 2011, I was a finalist for the Knight Fellowship at Stanford University. In 2011, I founded, and still host, the Arizona Storytellers Project

In 2012, it won a Rocky Mountain Emmy Award and a National Headliner Award for first place in Journalistic Innovation.

I'm obsessed with the idea that oral storytelling and journalism are dedicated to the same goals: serving and reflecting a community while fostering empathy among those community members.

I feel strongly about NPR, feminism, cocktails and my hair. I prefer a bold lip to a smoky eye.
