Meghan Kluth is your utility player, she’s the on-air personality who can truly do it all. She’s covered Stanley cup runs, the NFL, red carpets, college football, and hard news in the 3rd largest market
in the country.
Her career began in Chicago, in an uncommon way. Meghan and her sister Aly had just graduated from college and while applying for jobs they decided to create their own videos for fun, and pitch them to local sports blogs. Meghan was a communications major at Boston University and
Aly had a passion for filming and editing; so together they were the dream team with Aly
behind the camera and Meghan in front. They made several quirky videos ranging from Bears tailgates with fans, to satirical pieces; when eventually major publications in town took notice. The Chicago Sun-Times picked them up and started airing their videos on all of their digital platforms.
Kluth quickly established herself in the Chicago market as a force to be reckoned with. For the three years post graduation she forged her way in the broadcast world, covering high school football for Comcast Network, contributing on WGN's FM dial 87.7 The Game, and doing pre and post game coverage for MLB.com. She covered the season the Cubs hired Joe Madden, acquired Jon Lester, and Kris Bryant was called up to the major league.
In 2015 Kluth got a call from the ABC affiliate in New Orleans to join their team. There she learned to shoot
and edit all of her own stories. She also anchored the morning show, and created her own series with the
New Orleans Saints, called 'The Blitz, with Meghan Kluth.' She embraced the community and they embraced
her back. She was the first reporter of the local stations to get a one-on-one interview with Sean Payton, and formed a relationship with the Saints public relations staff that made her a trusted source to the team.
After three years in the Big Easy she moved home to be closer to family. She landed a gig with Stadium,
a digital network based in Chicago. Stadium airs professional and college sports across all syndicated
channels, and on facebook. She took on covering college football on the East Coast. The challenge being
that the broadcasts had no commercials, so she was doing anywhere from 18 to 22 live hits a game; growing
as a broadcaster and sideline reporter.
In 2019 she was asked to come on board at ABC 7 Chicago, and do hard news. She embraced the challenge
of doing news for a change, breaking some of the top stories in the market.
She’s passionate about local charities, such as raising money for breast cancer awareness. She helped raise over $20,000 supporting causes benefiting breast cancer research. She also emceed a concert series for 3 years in New Orleans that raised money for charities benefiting local youth projects.
With a love for people and a passion for story telling, Meghan Kluth has established herself!
