Megan Kennedy grew up in Massachusetts but moved to Hayfield, Minnesota in high school and now considers herself a full-on Minnesotan. (with the exception of which pro sports teams she roots for, cuz please.) She's been with KROC since 1999, likes to host in-studio dance parties while on the air, and LOVES that her job keeps her involved with all sorts of fundraisers in our community. She is aspiring to be the Ryan Seacrest of Rochester--along with Radio, she also writes a weekly column (Seen & Heard) for the Rochester Post Bulletin, so if she can just finagle a spot on local TV, she can conquer the world! Her favorite artists on KROC are Maroon 5, Jason Mraz, Katy Perry, and Mr. Justin Timberlake. Even though you may think she’s a sweet girl, deep inside she is a terrible person because this video cracks her up every time! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JSYWqkhScU8

A Great Example of “Kids These Days”
There have been a few things in the local news lately about teens not making the best choices (or flat out being bad people) so things like THIS make me so happy -- and not just because I'm a Hayfield High School Alumni -- because I love seeing that this is what "kids these days" can be like...
Worn on TV!
I'm not that great at shopping, I don't have that "eye" to put outfits together, so I always just look for inspiration (fine, I'll say it, I always copy other people's looks) in other places. I take a lot of screen shots on my phone and I LOVE seeing clothes on characters on TV shows and then go, THAT...
