As Delaware LIVE News celebrates its one-year anniversary as a locally-owned news business focused on hyperlocal news and information across the First State, the company welcomes Dover resident Charles Megginson to the newsroom.
Raised in Sussex County, Megginson studied political science, business and philosophy at Duquesne University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, before returning to Delaware to work for the Delaware State Senate. With a desire to place more objective journalism into the public commentary, Charlie’s mission to cover fairly the stories that matter to Delawareans became a top priority for him.
“I couldn’t be more thrilled to join the Delaware LIVE team as a staff writer,” said Megginson. “Having followed statewide news for as long as I can remember, I am acutely aware of the biases that exist in the media, even in our small state. Delaware LIVE’s community-oriented mission to deliver the First State positive and balanced news is a noble one, and one that I’m grateful and excited to be a part of.”
Senior Editor Betsy Price welcomes Megginson’s passion for connecting the public with information that many times seems to be hidden behind closed doors.
“I am delighted to have Charlie on board. His passion for government and politics, coupled with his front-row seat in the State House as a legislative aide for the last year, will help illuminate the law-making process for our readers,” said Price.
In just over a year, Delaware LIVE has strengthened its hyperlocal approach to community news throughout the First State with a focus on Delaware’s difference makers and local entrepreneurs.
With the acquisitions of Town Square LIVE, in the Hockessin, Pike Creek, North Wilmington, and Brandywine Hundred Region; and Milford LIVE, in Kent and Sussex County, the company has reinforced its commitment to engage local residents with their local schools, businesses, government, healthcare and communities. In addition, Delaware LIVE Sports connects First State families with their favorite Delaware high school teams on a daily basis as they livestream sports in each county, focusing on fall, winter and spring seasons.
“We are excited to continue to tell the stories of Delaware’s families, businesses, innovators and entrepreneurs that are making the First State an incredible place to live, work and play,” said Delaware LIVE CEO Bryan Shupe. “The daily engagement we receive from our readers shows the passion that people have for what they do every day and we are honored to have the opportunity to share their story.”
