After growing up polka dancing in the Christmas City, Raegan Medgie headed to the City of Brotherly Love to study Journalism, bungee jumped in Switzerland with her brother Ethan and worked with Mickey Mouse in Disney World. This is just the beginning of her journey to Newswatch 16.
Raegan began her professional journalism career in Allentown, Pennsylvania, where she worked at the cable news station, TV2 News, Service Electric.
After hitting the streets in the Lehigh Valley, Raegan headed north to Elmira, New York to work at WETM. She started out reporting and ended up as the main co-anchor for the area’s only two-hour morning newscast. Raegan would start her day when most people were sleeping.
Now, Raegan is ecstatic to be back in her home state and to tell the stories that affect you and your neighbors.
Raegan is from Bethlehem. She graduated from Liberty High School (GO ‘CANES!) and received her Journalism degree from Temple University. (For those of you wondering, yes, Bill Cosby DID speak at her graduation. She is also a huge Temple Men’s Basketball fan and would show her team spirit by painting her body with the school colors, cherry and white.)
Raegan will be exploring the Poconos as the Bureau reporter.
When she’s not working, Raegan loves to travel, hit the gym, talk with her hands and most importantly, spend time with her family and friends.
