Meagan Perry

Meagan Perry began her work in media at the age of 17, broadcasting at her high school's lunchhour intercom radio station. She then moved on to a decade in community radio, working as news director at CJSR-FM in Edmonton, Alberta, then programming manager at CFRU-FM in Guelph, Ontario. In the late '90s Meagan joined the team at CBC Radio's As It Happens where she directed the nightly program and produced stories. She then moved to Winnipeg to work at CBC's Definitely Not the Opera. In 2005, Meagan left the CBC and headed North to Whitehorse Yukon, where worked for the Territory's independent newspaper The Yukon News, spearheading a program of community reporting across the territory while freelancing for print and radio outlets including: This Magazine, Herizons, The New Zealand Herald, National Post, BBC, Irish Public Radio, and NPR. When rabble.ca started its podcast network, Meagan joined on and has been honoured to work with podcasters and radio professionals across the world for 8 years. In 2007, Meagan founded MAP Communications Consulting, which continues to produce audio and video content for organizations across Canada. In her work with rabble.ca, she is consistently impressed by the knowledge and commitment of progressive activists, and the breadth and strength of activism in Canada. When Meagan is not at her computer, she can probably be found gardening. Meagan was rabble.ca's editor-in-chief from 2013-2015 and executive producer of the rabble podcast network from 2005-2013.
