Megan Hayes

Megan Hayes joined WHNT News 19 in May 2012 as a producer and multimedia journalist. Born and raised in Huntsville, she is excited to start her career at home in the Tennessee Valley.

Megan is a Grissom High School graduate, and has a degree in telecommunication and film from The University of Alabama. While in school, she worked as a reporter and student anchor for WVUA-TV in Tuscaloosa and Alabama Public Radio. She also worked for the University of Alabama Panhellenic Association as the event coordinator for two years.

Megan always knew she wanted to pursue a career in journalism and work for WHNT. She comes from a family of journalists and grew up with a passion for visual storytelling and the desire to deliver accurate news.

When she’s not at work, Megan loves to cheer on the Crimson Tide football team! She is an avid runner, which makes up for all of the “Friends” episodes she watches at night. She also has a poodle named Charlie, and he always tunes in to WHNT.
