Margery Eagan Started Writing Stories For Newspapers From Young Age
The third-generation Irish-American was born on 13 June 1954 to Daniel Eagan and Margaret Manning. She was raised Roman Catholic and had started writing stories at a young age, which was encouraged by her English teacher during the time she was attending Durfee High School.
Margery, age 64, took a job at the Fall River Herald News after graduation at a rate of $15 per story. And it was when she reached the age of 24 when she was hired as a full-time feature writer at the Burlington Free Press in Vermont. Getting hired as a general assignment reporter at the Boston Herald in 1981, the radio host was given a column.
She wrote regularity until July 2014, and her contribution has brought her two nominations in the category of Outstanding Newspaper Columnist for GLAAD Media Awards.
And it wasn’t long before she started co-hosting the Jim & Margery Show with Jim Braude on FM 96.9 WTKK of Boston where she earned an apparent salary that ranged from $118,858 to $157,533.

Her husband was a reporter and editor of Boston Globe and they share two daughters and a son from their married life. Unfortunately, their married life came to a stop as they opted for divorce in 1999 due to undisclosed reasons.
They might have parted ways after 20 long years of being married, but they got along with each other really well and even went to visit Margery’s family in Cape Cod every Christmas. But some things just don’t work out, and the same happened to Margery and her husband of 20 years.
As of now, Margery has not delved into the matter of finding another life partner and is dedicated to spending most of her time with her daughters and son, whose identities are kept behind the curtains to date.
