Megan Sukys was born a talkative child in North Carolina. Her mother supplied her with a small tape recorder and an abundance of cheap cassettes to redirect her verbal energy. This was the unofficial beginning of Megan's radio career. It was also the end of her southern accent.
Megan attended the North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics for high school. She secured a theatre degree from the University of the South in Sewanee, Tennessee. Although she entertained careers in politics, environmental advocacy and acting, the diversity of topics and personal connection of public radio brought her back to the microphone.
Megan's official radio debut was as an overnight DJ on a pop station in Fayetteville, NC. She then moved on to a morning radio show in North Myrtle Beach, SC. Her first real job at a public radio station was in Rocky Mount, NC. There, she did everything from hosting to fundraising to cranking up the transmitter after a hurricane.
Megan Sukys lives in Tacoma with her husband, son and daughter, and a stockpile of grits.
