Megan Henderson

Megan Henderson co-anchors the early edition of the “KTLA Morning News.” She’s thrilled to be a part of the show she grew up watching.

Megan was born in San Pedro and spent part of her childhood in Long Beach before moving to San Clemente, where her family still lives today. She graduated from Arizona State University with a bachelor’s degree from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism. She started her broadcast career in Wichita Falls, Texas, doing everything from reporting and anchoring to editing and producing.

From there, Megan moved to Salt Lake City where she reported and anchored for Fox’s “Good Day Utah.” She later moved to Dallas to host Fox’s top-rated morning show “Good Day” at KDFW-TV. Megan has also traveled to New York City on several occasions to guest-host “Fox and Friends Weekend” on Fox News Channel.

Throughout her career, Megan has made supporting various philanthropic causes a priority. She is most actively involved with UNICEF USA, Children’s Hospital Los Angeles and the Watts Youth Empowerment Center.

When she’s not working, Megan enjoys traveling, spending time with family and friends, hiking with her dog Baxter and sleeping in. You can follow her on Instagram at @meganhenderson.
