Much of Meg Frankowski’s reporting has been found by listening and engaging with folks from all around the city. If she could personalize a bumper sticker for her car it would read: “Will break for a good story.”
Meg looks for big-picture stories that focus on people, issues and trends that tie readers more closely to their community. Her work has spanned topics from elections to animal abuse. She sets out to tell the story of those who are game changers, activists, and motivators.
She got her start with the WHYY NewsWorks crew as an intern in 2011. Since then, she has worked at the station as a web and social media assistant, production assistant for Morning Edition and WHYY-TV, and research assistant for StateImpact Pennsylvania. She has led efforts to create the NewsWorks Street Team and co-produced a civic engagement video project, Street Level Conversations.
Meg’s work has been featured in Temple’s Fox Focus Magazine and a Philly.com-powered suburban newspaper, My Community Trend. She’s a Temple grad and recipient of The Legacy Award for her work that examined race-related issues in the Delaware Valley.
While on the road to her journalism career, Meg has bagged groceries, cleaned up fire damaged homes, and been a ‘tender of the bar. She’s a native of “The Great Northeast” Philadelphia, a Flyers/Phantoms fan, and the very proud owner of two rescued pit-bull mixes.
