About Megan Holiday
Megan Holiday has been obsessed with music for as long as she can remember and her record collection varies from Motown and The Beatles to Nirvana and Post Malone. She loved singing lessons and acting in musicals as a kid which later translated to emo hair and sweaty pop punk shows in high school. Megan always had a love affair with listening to radio and it was when she first attended a local radio summer concert in college that she realized she could harness that passion into a career. Just two years later, she made that dream a full-circle reality and began her first on-air gig. From the first moment Megan cracked the microphone she knew that broadcasting was her calling in life. It was the element of getting to connect with people that drew her in the most. After all of these years, her passion and love for radio grows stronger every day.
In addition to her on-air responsibilities, Megan has hosted live concerts and events. She’s also interviewed globally recognized talents including Coldplay, Beck, Jack White, and Panic! at the Disco. She also expanded her skillset into podcasting with her “7 Words” podcast, where she discusses how guests like Emile Hirsch, Margaret Cho, Brandon Jenner, and more manifested their dreams into reality.
With many years of sobriety under her belt, Megan focuses on her recovery as a top priority and is an advocate for addiction and mental health awareness. She also loves spending time with her family and her dog Juno, being involved in community service, horseback riding, and attends as many concerts as humanly possible. Ultimately, Megan believes that if she has made one person smile, whether it’s during their commute or at an event, she has done her job.
