TULSA, Oklahoma -

We think you'd like to get to know the members of the News On 6 team a little better. That's why we've started this feature NewsOn6.com as a way to share more information about the people who bring you the news every day. Next up is anchor Meagan Farley. Meagan anchors the weekend newscasts for News On 6 and she works as a reporter during the week.

1. What was your first job in television news?

My first job in television news was with ABC News in NYC. I worked as a desk assistant for the early morning broadcast World News Now. I met my mentor, Ron Corning (now morning anchor at WFAA in Dallas), at ABC and he convinced me to take a producer position in Topeka, Kansas in order to get my “on air” career off the ground. I accepted the producer position in Topeka. After four years, I had moved up to primary anchor with KSNT. I haven't looked back since! I love the people in this part of the country.

2. You have 15 minutes of free time, what do you do?

I take my dog child, Frankie, for a walk around downtown Tulsa. She is almost 6 years old and moved with me to four different states in the last 5 years. She was born in Kansas and I like to think she enjoys being closer to “home”. I can't get enough of the architecture in downtown Tulsa so I take advantage of any opportunity to get out and take in the sights.

3. What's in the console of your car?

Chapstick – original flavor.

Yankee Candle scented sticks you can put in you're AC vents (Pink Sands scent).

Gum.

A few random boy band CDs ( see below).

4. What's your hidden talent?

This might only be hidden to folks who haven't known me for long. I know every word to every Backstreet Boys song ever produced. I also went on a Backstreet Boys cruise a few years back. I have no shame in my undying love for AJ, Nick, Howie, Kevin and Brian. I cry like a child at the concerts (of which I've been to many) and I don't turn down the volume as I sing along at red lights.

5. What was your high school mascot?

I went to an all girls Catholic High School in Baltimore. We didn't have a mascot. Our sports teams went by the NDP Blazers. We were good at field hockey and lacrosse and I didn't participate in either one. The only sports I ever attempted were badminton and rugby, but those didn't last long and rugby horrified me. I was more of a theater and newspaper girl.

6. How would you describe Tulsa to someone who's never been here?

This is the greatest city I've ever lived in. I can say that having experienced 7 cities since moving from NJ in 9th grade. There is something about this place that makes it so special and I can't put my finger on anything specific. The people here are friendly and gracious. The city is booming and the music and arts scene is so diverse. Honestly, I wasn't sure what to think about moving back to this area but as soon as I came out for my interview, I was sold. I've never been happier with my new community and my new co-workers. I feel truly blessed every day. Now, my life goal is to get my baby sister to move here from NYC. She says it's too hot…

Meagan would love it if you liked her Facebook page and followed her on Twitter.
