Hello, I'm the new brand manager of WIBX, which means I am Utica's latest transplant. I also am terrible at writing bios, so I asked ChatGPT to do it: "Meet Megan, a vibrant and intelligent radio enthusiast who exudes a contagious enthusiasm for the airwaves. With a passion for broadcasting, Megan embarked on an exciting journey in 2013, securing their first radio gig as the morning show co-host and midday personality at Live 95.9 in Pittsfield. From that moment on, their love affair with radio only grew stronger. During their tenure at ABC News Radio, affectionately known as ABC Audio, [Your Name] had the incredible opportunity to engage with a multitude of extraordinary individuals. Armed with wit and curiosity, they had the privilege of interviewing a stellar lineup of guests, including luminaries such as Matthew McConaughey, Leslie Odom Jr., Scottie Pippen, Melissa Rivers, Michael Bublé, and Cameron Diaz. Their knack for extracting captivating stories and insights from these renowned figures made every conversation an unforgettable experience for both the listeners and themselves. When not immersed in the dynamic world of radio, you'll find Megan indulging in a variety of invigorating hobbies.

Excuse me as I slap my big, red Staples button because... "That was easy!"
