Meghann Cuniff is a veteran reporter who's covered everything from the school board in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, to the cross-country judicial saga of Southern California attorney Michael Avenatti. She works as a freelancer in California, specializing in legal affairs but also skilled at breaking news, crime and government coverage as well as long-form watchdogging and narratives.

After interning at The Bulletin in Bend, Oregon, she was selected for a legislative session internship at The Spokesman-Review, then hired full time to cover K-12 schools in North Idaho. She then covered night breaking news and the dayside public safety beat before joining the Idaho Statesman as a breaking news and web editor. She moved to California in 2013 to cover the city of San Juan Capistrano for the Orange County Register. She was promoted to the countywide politics beat , then worked for four years at the Los Angeles Daily Journal covering law firms and litigation in Orange County.
