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!
