The Bellevue Police Department is pleased to announce award-winning journalist Meeghan Black is the new Public Information Officer. Black will work with the media on police matters, run the department’s social media and be the chief storyteller for Bellevue Police.
Black has been a fixture on Seattle TV since the mid-1990s. She began as a reporter at KIRO TV and transitioned to KING-TV where she was a reporter, anchor, meteorologist and pioneered the KING 5 traffic department. After hosting the popular shows Evening Magazine and Gardening with Ciscoe on KING, Black left television to pursue other interests.
“We are excited for Meeghan to join our team and bring her vast media and communications experience to the Bellevue Police Department. Meeghan’s storytelling ability will help us better connect with our residents and highlight the amazing programs provided by us, said Bellevue Chief of Police Steve Mylett.
Black says this position is a perfect fit. “As PIO of the Bellevue Police Department, I am really going back to my roots as a reporter and storyteller. I look forward to working with my former colleagues in the media, connecting with Bellevue residents and putting a bright spotlight on the amazing programs this department offers.”
Meeghan will be training with outgoing PIO Seth Tyler for the next few weeks before assuming the role full-time.
