Chandler Morgan

Weekend Anchor, Education Reporter

Charlotte, NC

Chandler Morgan joined the WBTV team in 2018, originally as an Alert Center anchor and reporter. Chandler soon moved into the role of Weekend Anchor and Weekday Education reporter. Chandler frequently fills-in anchoring during the weekdays. She also anchors from the WBTV News Now Desk.

Since joining the team, Chandler has earned an Emmy nomination for her work covering the 2019 UNC Charlotte deadly on-campus shooting. Chandler has also notably worked to uncover a lapse of employee fingerprinting in the Charlotte-Mecklenburg School district, which eventually contributed to the district’s former top leader stepping down.

Chandler is originally from Georgia but she is no stranger to Charlotte. Chandler’s extended family calls Charlotte and the Carolinas home. She’s even had relatives go through the Charlotte Mecklenburg and Rock Hill school districts.

Previously, Chandler worked as the Weekend Anchor 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.

A fun fact about Chandler is she loves all things Disney. If you have a cool Disney World fun fact, send it her way!
