Meghan BowmanWUSF Rush Family Radio News intern
I’m a little less traditional than your typical intern at WUSF, but nothing about my life has been typical. Before I fell in love with radio journalism, I enjoyed a long career in the arts in musical theatre.
In 2019, I moved to Tampa from Austin, TX. During my time in the Lone Star State, I met my husband and had two beautiful boys. While continuing to work in the arts world, I also volunteered with members of the LGBTQ community in recovery. That outreach allowed me to meet groups of people from all walks of life and led me on a path to give a voice to the voiceless.
This past summer, I graduated from Hillsborough Community College with my Associate in Arts degree. During my time there, I had the pleasure of hosting a weekly college radio show on HawkRadio. I also anchored local news headlines and hosted a weekly music program called "The Dorm Room" on WMNF.
Now as a junior at University of South Florida studying Broadcast News, I’m excited to learn from all the incredible journalists at WUSF and put my passion into practice.
