Dear Friend,

Tickets On Sale Now!


Meet Meg McGuire,
Woman of Environmental Media, Marketing, and Communications

Meg McGuire, a career newswoman, is the founder, publisher and editor of Delaware Currents, an online news magazine dedicated to covering the Delaware River and its watershed.

She founded the site, a nonprofit news outlet, in 2015. Its mission? “We are better custodians of the river when we understand the river. All voices are welcome to this conversation.”

Delaware Currents is dedicated to telling the stories of the river from its headwaters in the Catskill Mountains of New York to the Delaware Bay, where it meets the ocean.

At a time when legacy newsrooms in our communities and larger news outlets have dramatically shrunk, and resources dedicated to environmental beats have all but disappeared, Delaware Currents stands out. McGuire tells deeply reported, explanatory stories of the river that readers will not find anywhere else.

It is the only news source entirely dedicated to spotlighting news of the ecology, people, commerce and protection of the 330-mile river and a watershed that spans four states, Delaware, New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania. McGuire is also almost always the only news reporter serving as a watchdog to the activities of the Delaware River Basin Commission.

Among other achievements, McGuire’s prodding and birddog reporting is credited with the creation of a Congressional Delaware River Watershed Caucus that would look out for the basin’s interests.

McGuire, who lives about 15 minutes from the river in Pike County, Pa., grew up in New Jersey and spent a career in news as a reporter and editor. She was a health and human services reporter and columnist at The News Times in Danbury, Conn., the executive editor of The Daily Star in Oneonta, N.Y., and managing editor of The Times Herald-Record in Middletown, N.Y.

She also has an MFA in poetry.

Congratulations, Meg!
