Name: Megan Wolf, of Galloway Township
Education: Bachelor's degree in communications, from Rowan University
Family: Married to Al Wolf, with children Elizabeth, 9, and Gregory, 51/2
Employer: NBC40 News, WMGM-TV
Position: News director
NBC40 is the only television affiliate in New Jersey. We service the Atlantic, Cape May and Cumberland counties area.
We bring South Jersey news and programming. NBC40 News airs each weekday morning from 6 to 7 a.m., with "Today in South Jersey." Our evening news is on at 5, 5:30 and 6 p.m., Monday through Friday. And seven days a week we air news at 11 p.m.
We have a great team. We start the day off with a morning meeting in which we determine what we're hoping to cover that day, subject to change from breaking news.
Crews consisting of a reporter and video photographer go out, gather news and bring it back to the producers, who put together the shows.
My role in all of this is I try to make sure everyone is on the same page. There are so many aspects that go into the newscast, so I make sure there's open communication between all departments.
We research, myself and the assistant news director, Phaedra Laird, and discuss on a daily basis what we believe matters most to South Jersey, based on feedback we get - from our website, Facebook, Twitter, so many different ways.
Reporters have ideas, producers have ideas, and we all discuss and work out a plan each day.
I also go to a lot of meetings and do a lot of paperwork on the administrative side of the job.
Entry: I moved from Manahawkin to Montana when I was 10. It was 145 miles to the nearest mall. I moved back to Ocean County when I was 18. I started here at NBC40 as an intern in December 2000 and worked my way up to news producer. Then I left to start my family, and eventually came back to TV40, which is like another family, as an executive producer.
About me: I hang out with my kids when I'm not working. Whether going to a park or an art class, I'm happiest when I'm with them.
