Chandler Morgan joined the WBTV team in December 2018. Originally as an Alert Center anchor and reporter. Chandler soon moved into the Education reporter role where she can fulfill her passion of telling stories that matter for our kids in the classroom. Since joining the team, Chandler has worked to uncover a lapse of fingerprinting in the local Charlotte-Mecklenburg School district, which eventually contributed to the district’s top leader stepping down.
When she’s not reporting, you might see Chandler fill-in during the week on the anchor desk, along with her regular anchoring on the weekends. In August 2019, Chandler moved into the Weekend Evening Anchor position where her love for anchoring shines, while bringing you the news on the anchor desk in the studio.
Originally, Chandler is from Atlanta, Georgia but Chandler is no stranger to Charlotte. Chandler’s extended family calls Charlotte and the Carolina’s home and she even had relatives go through the Charlotte Mecklenburg and Rock Hill school districts.
Previously, Chandler worked as the Weekend Anchor and weekday reporter for Gray sister station, WTVM in Columbus, Georgia for two years. There, Chandler was a part of Emmy nominated team coverage of Hurricane Michael in 2018.
When Chandler isn’t anchoring or reporting, you can find her spending time with her dog, Kiki, at the local parks or painting; one of her favorite creative hobbies! Chandler loves to get outside, travel and spend time with her family. A fun fact about Chandler is she is OBSESSED with all things Disney. So if you have a cool Disney World fun fact, send it her way!
If you want to catch up with Chandler on social media you can follow her on Twitter at @Chandler_TV and on Facebook at her Chandler Morgan WBTV page.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools (CMS) addressed numerous things during Tuesday night’s school board meeting including a naming new general counsel, creating a new office within the district, and a request for more funds going towards therapists at an alternative school.
Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools recently announced it was the top urban district for fourth-grade reading and math, and eighth-grade math, and was second in eighth-grade reading in the 2019 tests given by the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP).
Emma Lineberger, a fifth grader at Rankin Elementary, had looked around at her classmates and that’s when an idea popped in her head. She realized the supplies she had in her own backpack weren’t the same as her fellow students. Emma wanted to change that for them.
A big order of business at Tuesday night’s Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools board meeting concerned the policy on how the public can be a part of the district’s Community Equity Committee, a committee that has taken years for the district to create structure to bring to fruition.
12 districts started the 2019-2020 school year one of them was Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools. But CMS went back to school today with a new leader in charge of the district, Superintendent Earnest Winston.
While thousands of students spend this weekend making sure they have all of their last minute preparations ready for the first day back, our local districts have to make sure they are ready and fully staffed to have these students back in the classroom.
