Tara Calligan is an award-winning journalist and a public media producer, writer and online content creator at WGCU. She started her public media journey as a news intern for the station in 2015 and has been cranking out content ever since.

She has presented at several PBS and NPR conferences, including PBS TechCon. In January 2021, she became a member of PBS' Media & Marketing Advisory Council, providing direct, local station feedback to the Public Broadcasting Service.

She is one of the hosts and producers for the podcast Three Song Stories: Biography Through Music, which brings out the guests’ personalities, and personal histories, by mining the connections music has made during their lifetimes. She is also a producer for WGCU's radio talk show Gulf Coast Life. When she is not writing up a storm, editing, or booking shows, she assumes the alter ego Moria Midnight, Monarch of Macabre, a late-night horror host on WGCU HDTV.
