About

 

 

 

Born and raised in Sacramento my love for pop culture, news and entertainment began with radio. I would call stations and request songs (back when that was still a thing) and then I would record myself onto a tape when they played me back. I thought that would one day be my application. Little did I know cassette tapes would be obsolete by the time I was ready to apply for jobs. I’m getting ahead of myself. I have always loved music. I learned how to kiss with my Lance Bass poster because obviously the one who doesn’t like women would be my favorite member of NSYNC. I also went through a very huge B2K phase (B2KsGrl143 was my SN) and in my later years a massive Bob Saget phase. Don’t ask me how I got from Lance Bass to B2K to Bob Saget because I have no idea. I also like Kid Rock and Nickleback, don’t @ me.

 

I developed a major love for animals after adopting my 3 legged black cat Chuck, from Front Street Animal Shelter and it inspired me to help other special needs animals in Sacramento. “Megan’s S.P.I.N. of the week was born which stands for “Special Pet In Need”.  I mainly featured special needs animal looking for their forever home. Through Covid, it’s been hard to help the shelter in that capacity but I was able to submit my story to the Petco Foundation and ended up winning Front Street a $60,000 grant. The fact that Chuck’s adoption story had that much of an impact has made the dark days of 2020 a little brighter. This year, Chuck also inspired me to start a podcast. “What The Chuck with Megan Rage” is available wherever you get your podcast with a new episode every Wednesday.

 The “Rage” on my name isn’t because I’m angry, it’s because I used to go out a lot…..okay I still go out a lot. The name really stuck after this guy I had declined for multiple dates said to me, “Well if you weren’t out pound sign raging all the time maybe I’d have a chance!!” First of all, it’s a hashtag and secondly, no but thanks for my new name. I’m married now to a guy who knows what a hashtag is and moved here from England after we met and fell in love in Vegas. #Rage 

 

 

 

Career

I’ve worked in the radio industry since 2005. I started right out of high school as an intern at 105.1 KNCI and

then eventually got a weekend shift on the air. After KNCI, I was on NOW 100.5 as a part time jock before

moving to full time position on the morning show with Wayne and Jay on 102.5 KSFM. Being on 102.5 was

very surreal for me especially because in high school I did a school project where I sat in with the Davey D

morning show on 102.5 for a week. That’s when I really realized that’s what I wanted to do with my life and

fast forward 12 years, that’s what I was doing with my life.  Wayne Jay and Megan in the morning was on

the air until 2016 and I remained on 102.5 doing middays until I made the transition back to NOW 100.5 in

2017. Radio is crazy and ever changing, you really have to love it through the up’s and downs.

I took a break for a year, worked for the state of CA, hated it…with a passion. Then made my move back to

radio in 2019 doing afternoons for Fuego 103.5 in Sacramento (98.9 in Stockton/Modesto). Due to Covid,

my time there was a lot shorter than I had hoped and I was furloughed and eventually let go. Luckily I was

able to land a job working from home for a station in Eugene, OR – 104.7 KDUK! I absolutely love that I able

to still do what I love during a time of such uncertainty. You can catch me there 10a-2p Monday – Friday by

streaming through the KDUK app or at KDUK.com!
