Megan Contreras

Megan Contreras joined the WINK News team in October 2012.

Early on, she grew to love the ever-so-changing days and stories this business brings. No two days are alike for Megan, who is a General Assignment reporter for WINK.
But, you will typically find her reporting on the sand. Megan is WINK's Fort Myers Beach reporter.

All the way from Southern California, Megan graduated with honors and received her bachelor's degree from San Diego State University, majoring in Broadcast Journalism and minoring in Television, Film and New Media.
She furthered her experience at NBC San Diego, where she was a morning intern and worked on a college sports show.

Megan moved to Casper, Wyoming and began her career at KTWO, an ABC affiliate.
While fulfilling her time in Wyoming, she was an anchor and reporter. Megan covered many stories involving the military and the fire departments, she did a lot of work with an organization honoring Wyoming's Fallen Heroes.

Megan passions involve the world of extreme sports. She has grown up riding dirt bikes, wakeboarding and snowboarding and her newest obsession, paddle boarding. She even had the chance to Flyboard for a news story. Megan also spent years inside of a dance studio.

When Megan is not in front of the camera, you can find her enjoying the Fort Myers Beach, where she lives, out boating on the Gulf, paddle boarding, riding her beach cruiser down Estero Blvd or at the gym.

Megan would love to hear from you.
