Meg Farris Career
Farris works at WWL-TV in New Orleans as a reporter, specializing in health and medicine. She is Southeast Louisiana’s only broadcast journalist committed to covering the beat of health and medicine. Meg the MedicalWatch reporter donned her first pair of scrubs when she was just 15 years old. Her articulate enthusiasm led her into living rooms, where she could host her evening “Medical Watch” reports – and her morning feature alongside national fitness guru Mackie Shilstone. When she became a teenager, she was making a routine date with Destiny in the local O.R., where she would observe her dad, noted obstetrician/ gynecologist Dr. Charles Farris, Jr., for hours in surgery.
Gratitude to New Orleans’ stature as a world-class city for medical research, Meg brings a wealth of groundbreaking stories to her highly health-conscious audience. ” She also observed that they have clinical trials galore going on at Tulane, Ochsner, LSU Health Sciences Center, and other private clinics.” Her “Medical Watch” stories, as well as her “Wrinkle Free Friday” and “Weight Loss Wednesday” reports, reflect the multi-faceted beat that Meg covers. She also can be found at times on the “Eyewitness Morning News” interviewing nationally recognized medical and fitness specialists.
Meg doesn’t stop with her carefully crafted medical reports as every Wednesday throughout the 6 to 8 a.m. edition of WWL-TV’s “Eyewitness Morning News,” you will catch her doing everything from yoga positions to pumping iron – as she teams up with coworker Shilstone for a fitness session with “Mackie & Meg.” It’s the exact kind of determination that brought her in 1981, fresh out of Ole Miss with a dual major in print journalism paired with TV and radio, as well as UPI stringer credentials covering Oxford’s Federal Court, to eagerly begin at the bottom of the prestigious Channel Four newsroom as a desk assistant.
After she became Assistant Assignment Editor, and then serving as Satellite Coordinator, Meg landed a spot on the air reporting and producing the community events feature “New Orleans 4 Today.” By the early 90’s, she found a chance to channel a lifelong interest in science and began contributing her first local medical reports to the increasingly popular morning newscast.
Currently, those early morning packages have grown into WWL-TV’s high-profile “Medical Watch” franchise, and Meg’s found herself scrubbing in for the O.R. again – but this time around, she’s now escorted by a Channel Four news photographer. When’s she off from her reporting responsibilities, Meg takes care of her dogs and abandoned Easter rabbits that also came from the local shelter. Meg also reports on all topics of local news and in 2021 earned an Emmy Award for following the daily struggle of a single mom taking care of a child paralyzed by gun violence.
