Megan O'Dell


Megan O'Dell recently joined WAND as a reporter in March of 2015. She is a Decatur native, and could not imagine beginning her career anywhere else.

She grew up watching WAND every evening with her family.  After newscasts concluded, she and her sister would conduct their own versions of the news.
She attended Johns Hill Magnet School and is an Eisenhower High school graduate, and finished her Bachelors in Communication at the University of Illinois in Springfield and will be graduating this May.  She also interned with WAND in 2014.
The most important thing to her is family, so any free time she gets she devotes it all to them and her dog, Bertha. She also enjoys traveling, meeting new people, learning anything new and appreciating all that the Central Illinois area has to offer.
