Facebook: Meg Bonacorsi News Meg Bonacorsi is a Pennsylvania native and Cal Poly graduate. While Meg has moved across the country and back, she’s called the Lone Star State home for more than half a decade. Meg began her career in 2006 as a reporter. Fast forward to today, Meg is the evening anchor for Spectrum News Austin.
This Emmy-winning anchor finds inspiration in her work by helping others — whether it’s by keeping them informed and safe, or empowered and entertained. Meg had a series called “Giving Back,” where she covered a story that will always stick out to her. Meg told the story of a little girl, formerly in foster care, who created an organization called “Duffels for Dignity”. The girl rallied the community to donate backpacks and duffle bags for foster kids so they didn’t have to lug their few possessions from home to home in trash bags. Meg’s coverage helped bring awareness to this organization and proved exactly how journalism is used as a tool for good.
When Meg isn’t at the anchor desk, you can find her volunteering with CareBOX, delivering supplies to cancer patients throughout Central Texas. Aside from that, Meg spends most of her time with her husband and the dog they adopted from the Austin Animal Center.
