Margaret Burnquist

Margaret Burnquist is the host and managing editor of Access Carolina.

A storyteller, a wife and mom to two boys, Margaret has been proudly calling Greenville home since 2007. She loves steak dinners, visiting with friends, human names for dogs, the adventures of motherhood and exploring what’s new in her community.

On top of her 15+ years as a news anchor and reporter, Margaret took a hiatus away from news for a few years and work as a publicist. She combines her unique professional skillset with her enthusiasm for all the great things happening in our area to host Access Carolina.

Margaret is a native of Smithville, Missouri and graduated from Missouri State University.

On the weekends, I love to: stroll through downtown Greenville, explore restaurants, socialize with family and friends, and watch the KC Chiefs play football.

Hidden Talents: driving a golf ball, driving a stick shift and making chili

Hobbies/Interest: making to-do lists, good steak, videography/photography and human names for dogs

Most memorable story: Margaret has met and interviewed a bunch of politicians and B celebrities in her years reporting the news. But the most memorable was exploring a prehistoric cave shortly after it was accidentally discovered by a crew blasting for a new roadway in Springfield, MO in 2011. New scientific discoveries were made with each trip into the Riverbluff Cave.
