Megan Jurgemeyer is the Managing Editor at 9NEWS in Denver. Her responsibilities include day-to-day news gathering, coordination of news crews and long-term coverage planning.
After working in management in the construction supply industry for several years, Jurgemeyer decided to explore her love for writing and journalism. She earned her Masters of Mass Communication from Arizona State University in 2008 before taking her first job in news as an anchor and reporter at KREX in Grand Junction, Colorado. In 2010, Jurgemeyer took a job at KMGH in Denver, where she worked in a variety of assignment desk and producer roles. She accepted a position as senior weekend producer at KUSA in 2013 and moved into her current position in late 2015.
Even though she isn’t a native, Jurgemeyer feels like she is finally home. Her family vacationed here every year when she was growing up. Her time here inspired her to attend Colorado State University, where she obtained a B.A. in English in 1999. The draw of the mountains was too hard to resist for Jurgemeyer’s parents, who now live in Fairplay. Her brother lives in Stapleton with his wife and two beautiful daughters. When she’s not spending time with her family, you can probably find her cooking or checking out a new restaurant.
