Megan Poinski is a nationally recognized newspaper journalist, editor and web professional. As a reporter, she has extensive experience covering government and policies, politics, crime, federal and local courts. As an editor, she has worked with reporters and college students to develop and sharpen stories. Utilizing the Internet, she has experience with web design and project management, programming and utilizing content-management systems, usability testing, and coding languages.

She uses her knowledge both about technology and journalism as the night regional homepage editor at The Washington Post. She works to keep the newspaper's homepage targeted at Washington, D.C. area users updated around the clock with the important news they both want to know and need to know.

As a reporter, Megan has uncovered massive government corruption, spent countless hours covering legislative hearings in a state and a U.S. territory, written about high-profile trials, explained government action — and inaction — and reported on the drafting of a territorial constitution.

Megan has put those earned reporting skills to use as the deputy metro editor at The Washington Times and as an adjunct professor at George Washington University's School of Media and Public Affairs. At The Washington Times, she worked with the reporters covering the District, Virginia and Maryland. At GW, she taught the next generation of journalists the basics of newswriting and journalism.

In front of her computer, Megan was the driving force behind a comprehensive redesign of news website MarylandReporter.com. Through research of users and technology, and consulting with the site's publisher and tech contractors, Megan managed the transformation from the site's former unwieldy site and difficult-to-use content management system to a more usable and robust WordPress site.

Megan is interested in harnessing her passion for the news and applying it to new technologies. In 2011, she received her master’s degree in information management at the University of Maryland, College Park.
