Margaret Verghese started out in radio as just a teenager working in the Washington, DC market for Bonneville Broadcasting’s WWZZ-FM (Z-104) when that station was a Top 40 outlet. Margaret moved to New York to pursue making an impact in the national media landscape and landed at United Stations Radio Networks in an administrative role. She then joined the USRN comedy department in an affiliate services role during which she worked closely with radio stations in the creation of morning show content. Her abilities in understanding the needs of local radio stations, particularly morning shows, helped her rise to the head of USRN’s Pulse Content division which provides prep services for affiliates as well as their digital platforms. In 2013, she rose to her current position in which she oversees the development and production of all the company’s Comedy and Prep services. Margaret has also been named as one of Radio Ink Magazine’s Most Influential Women in Radio for the past five years.
