If you're watching local news in South Florida, you've probably noticed a new face recently. Megan Glaros joined the Local 10 Weather Team and SportsJam Live in September of 2004.

Originally from Dyer, Indiana, a suburb of Chicago, Megan attended Indiana University where she graduated with a double major in journalism and atmospheric sciences. During college she interned with Tom Skilling at WGN-TV in Chicago and at WRTV in Indianapolis. Megan then went on to work as a morning co-host and weather anchor at WTAP in Parkersburg, West Virginia.

Before beginning her career Megan was a very busy person. She performed and studied with dance companies in Chicago, Dallas and Los Angeles. In 2002 she was chosen as one of thirty Indianapolis Colts Cheerleaders.

Megan began her broadcasting career as a morning show host and weather anchor in the small town of Parkersburg, West Va. After a few short months, Megan was offered a job at NewsCentral in Baltimore, Md., and off she went. At NewsCentral, she got the chance to forecast for as many as four different cities a night! Some of her assignments included Baltimore, Oklahoma City, Birmingham, and Greensboro.

Here Megan gives advice to those who wish to try out for NFL and NBA cheer squads.
