Anchor signs off

Megan McMann moves on after 10 years with Action News Now

For Chicoans accustomed to waking up to the perky personality of longtime local TV news anchor Megan McMann, Friday (Aug. 25) will be a day for goodbyes.

McMann announced earlier this week via Facebook that she’s leaving Action News Now, adding that, after 10 years with the network, she’ll soon assume the role of community relations coordinator for the Butte County Sheriff’s Office. “I will never forget my first ‘grown up’ job and I will always cherish my time here, even if it included waking up at 3 a.m.,” she wrote.

A Chico State graduate, McMann (pictured) joined KHSL/KNVN as an intern during her last semester in spring 2005, according to the station’s website. She worked through the ranks and eventually became the face of the local morning broadcast, Wake Up.
