MEGS sm - The Essentials of Local News, Formatics, and Underwriting

"MEGS sm not only exceeded our expectations but continues to have an impact on every decision we make regarding programming."

"MEGS sm is a concentrated, clearly focused program that provides clear practical applications."


MEGS sm is the first national effort aimed at assuring peak performance on local stations. Originally developed with a focus on Morning Edition®, MEGS smnow includes all news programming and station-produced journalism, including Weekend Edition®, All Things Considered® , Middays, and other news magazines.  

Any programming that has many different elements must be managed successfully to maximize audience service. We encourage stations interested in all stages of development to attend.
