Classic game inspires McGregor to sportscasting career

Taylor McGregor(September 14, 2015) October 1st, 2007 is the day that Taylor McGregor confirmed her career path. That was the day the Colorado Rockies beat the San Diego Padres in 13 innings to advance to the National League Division Series.

“I knew that night I had a passion for storytelling and I would become a sports broadcaster,” says McGregor.

Goal achieved. McGregor has accepted her first professional sports broadcasting job as a reporter and weekend anchor at KCWY News 13 in Casper, WY.

McGregor graduated this spring from the University of Arkansas. Her senior year, she gained considerable producing and editing experience as a reporter for the Razorback Sports Network. McGregor has also served internships in Fayetteville, Kansas City and Denver, and at the MLB Network. She spent the summer of 2013 as a social media reporter for Root Sports Pittsburgh.

Inspiration can strike at any time. For McGregor, it was at that Padres-Rockies game eight years ago at Coors Field. “That game had a story and I wanted to tell it in a way that took people there and made them care,” McGregor writes on her website. “I didn’t know it at the time but the burning passion ignited that night was the start to my career.“
