Meghan Keneally is a journalist based in Manhattan. She works as the senior digital reporter for ABC News, covering a range of issues from breaking news and national politics to crime and international stories.

She received her Master’s degree at Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism and previously worked as a reporter for The Daily Mail‘s website, MailOnline. She has held internships at The New York Observer, The Washington Post, The Sunday Times of London and The Local East Village, a hyper-local New York Times blog based in the heart of downtown Manhattan.

While pursuing her joint undergraduate degree in Government and Art History at Georgetown University, she spent a semester studying at the University of Marc Bloch in Strasbourg, France. Born in the suburbs of New York, she moved to London, England, and lived abroad for 12 years before returning to the United States.

She is a passionate traveler, having visited 49 countries and currently plotting a trip to her 50th. Similarly, she is actively looking to travel to more states throughout the U.S., looking for untold stories about how politics impacts the daily lives of voters.

When she isn’t obsessively tracking political campaigns or visiting new places, she continues her perpetual search for her new favorite restaurant.
