Longtime Mississippi Coast broadcaster Meggan Gray announced Thursday that she will leave WXXV-TV for a new role at St. Patrick High School.

“It has been an absolute honor and privilege,” Gray said about working in television in Mississippi.

She will leave the station on July 7, Gray said in a video posted to the WXXV-TV Facebookpage.

Gray will serve as Director of Advancement at St. Patrick High. She is a 1999 graduate of St. John Catholic High School in Gulfport, which later became St. Patrick High.

Gray, who was born and raised in South Mississippi, has spent 20 years in broadcast journalism and started at WLOX-TV in Biloxi.

At WXXV-TV, Gray appeared as a co-anchor weekdays from 6 a.m. to 9 a.m. and also anchored the noon newscast. Before that, she co-anchored WLOX-TV’s “Good Morning Mississippi” from 2007 to 2021.

She moved to WXXV-TV after a dispute with WLOX-TV, where she had worked since 2003, because she refused to comply with the station’s policy that employees be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Gray had said she rejected the shot because she had already survived COVID-19, and because of “other powerful reasons” that she did not specify.

Gray grew up in Gulfport and attended Auburn University.
