Meghan Rafferty

Rafferty has brought a refreshing new voice to the evening newscast, offering fresh perspectives as a member of the LGBTQ+ community and the only female evening newscast executive producer. She’s not only made it her mission to spotlight marginalized communities, but also to tell stories that may be seen as taboo. Recent features from her team have spoken on the economic impact of menopause as well as a long and winding investigation into a string of suspicious deaths at NYC gay bars. “What’s meaningful to me is knowing that representation in my community, and also diversity across the board, is ingrained as part of the core mission of NBC News,” she says.
