Meghan Kluth Chicago
Meghan Kluth grew up on the north side of Chicago just two blocks from Wrigley Field. Her parents, Congressman Mike Quigley and wife Barbara Quigley are avid Cubs fans and would send Meghan to the bleachers during the dog days of summer with their friends when they couldn’t find a babysitter.
Somewhere along the line Kluth got hooked. Not just on the Cubs, but on sports and competition. At an early age, she was certain that she wanted to spend her life amidst the greatest competitors in the world, and once it became clear that she couldn’t be a bleacher bum for a living, she decided to pursue a career in sports broadcasting. She was already signing autographs in the left field bleachers at the age of nine, so it was a natural transition.
After high school, she moved east and earned a Bachelor of Science in Communications degree from Boston University. From there, she worked as a reporter and host for the Chicago Sun-Times during the 2013 Stanley Cup playoffs, before moving on to WGN sports talk radio, 87.7 FM The Game for a year as video host for wgn.com and on-air personality.
While working for the radio station, Kluth also freelanced with Comcast Network as a sideline reporter and host for Battle of The Fans, and MLB.com as a pregame and postgame reporter for the Cubs 2015 season.
In 2015, Kluth moved on to New Orleans at the ABC affiliate and spent two and a half years working across various platforms. She has quickly established herself as a force to be reckoned with, getting in with the movers and shakers of the New Orleans sports community.
In April 2017 Kluth scored a one-on-one interview with New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton that no one else in the market had. Her ability to make athletes and coaches feel comfortable is uncanny, and it is a skill she has used to start a magazine style segment with the New Orleans Saints called The Blitz.
