Maureen, Just Like Other Mothers, Juggles Work, Parenthood, and Home Life
Kyle and her husband, Mark McDougall met in front of the State Theatre Lobby restrooms at a fundraiser event in 2008. The couple got engaged the following year, in October 2009.

Kyle wakes up early every day and when we say early, we mean 2:30 a.m. for the busy, working mother who has to wake up early to meet the demands of her early-morning shift.
She has a lot to get done during the day, but Zoom and other technologies have made it possible for her to have some flexibility though not always.
She says; “I always joke that I’m a full-time mom, a full-time employee, and a part-time sleeper. I have a strange schedule, but that’s how we’ve managed to make it work.” I have to stick to a routine and stay at the forefront of things,” she says, adding that she makes a to-do list during commercial breaks. “I’ve always told my husband, ‘It’ll work until it doesn’t, and then we’ll figure out what to do.'”
The family also takes advantage of what Northeast Ohio has to offer while her daughters are involved in a variety of extracurricular activities. She says; “I want to show my daughters that if they want to be married, have a family, and have a career, they can do it.”
Maureen Kyle WKYC
Kyle became interested in broadcast news after meeting Jim Donovan, a local sportscaster who was conducting an interview with her father, Chuck Kyle. Chuck is the head football coach and English teacher at St. Ignatius High School.
She says; “I remember Donovan telling my dad, ‘This is amazing, this is this guy’s job. From that point on, just by the media coming into our lives occasionally because of my dad’s job, I was exposed to what it consists of and how much fun it is. I simply felt like this was my calling and never gave attention to pursuing any other profession.”
Despite attending college in New York and landing her first broadcasting job in Louisville, Kentucky, she always craved to return home. She claims that after “knocking on doors” throughout the community, WKYC 3 came through.
Kyle has worked there for most of her career, either in the field or currently as the morning anchor. She claims that she enjoys reporting for the radio frequently while wearing pajamas, but she prefers working on television because of the way the story is presented visually.

Where is Maureen From?
Maureen is a native of Ohio. She says; “We discussed how Northeast Ohio has all the amenities of the major cities while still being a lot more accessible and family-friendly. I think Northeast Ohio just has a vibe all its own. Northeast Ohio natives are extremely humble and have a fantastic sense of humor, which are still rooted in Midwestern ideals.”
