Megan Morant Biography – Megan Morant Wiki
Megan Morant, real name Megan O’Brien, is the host of “Raw Talk,” “SmackDown LowDown,” international shows for television, and digital shows including the “Monday Night Raw” sidecast on Twitch.
She joined WWE as a backstage correspondent in 2021. In 2023, Megan transitioend from backstage reporting to become a co-host for Raw Talk and SmackDown LowDown.
“SmackDown!,” which airs on Friday nights on Fox and is one of WWE’s flagship programs, originates from different locales across the country, having been broadcast from more than 160 different arenas since its debut in August 1999.
“At age 28, I’ve been to 45 states,” said Megan, “and a lot of those places I would have never gone to if it wasn’t for WWE.”
Born in Chicago, Illinois and a graduate of Northwestern University, Megan joined WWE from the New England Patriots, where she worked in a variety of broadcasting roles including as host of their sports talk show on Patriots.com. In addition, she covered the team during Super Bowl’s LVI and LVII and appeared weekly on CBS Sports Network’s pregame shows.
Prior to her time with the Patriots, Megan worked as a digital correspondent for the BIG EAST Conference and was a broadcaster for the Cape Cod Baseball League.
The former Northwestern track and cross-country athlete has run 11 marathons and five Boston as of 2023.
“My goal for the longest time was to break three hours in the marathon,” she told The Boston Globe. “I finally did it this past December at the California International Marathon. I’ve never broken three at Boston and I’ve actually never had a good race at Boston. So I’m looking to finally not go out too fast and finally have a good Boston race.
“And of course, it always means so much to be part of Patriots Day in Boston. The camaraderie is amazing, and the course is so unique. I’ve been running since I was 8 years old, and if you’re a runner, you dream about the Boston Marathon. And if you’re a runner and you’re not in Boston, you feel like you’re missing out on that day.”
When Megan first arrived in Boston, she lived with Molly Seidel, the sister of Northwestern teammate Isabel Seidel. Molly Seidel would go on to win a bronze medal in the marathon at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
