Morgan is a graduate of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She graduated from the School of Media and Journalism. Morgan earned her degree in Broadcast Journalism. No matter where she is, her love of the Tar Heels will never stop!
She previously worked at WCTI as the Greenville bureau reporter. There, she covered Hurricane Florence, the Kinston Towers buildings issues, a President Trump rally, and a rural hospital involved in a nationwide scam.
It was at WCTI where she found her passion for storytelling, especially human interest stories. One of her favorite feel good stories was about a little girl surviving a car crash with only a one percent chance to live.
During her 2017 summer, she interned with WSOC-TV in Charlotte, NC. There, she shadowed talented reporters and photographers, worked the assignment desk, and created her own stories.
Morgan also worked for her college station, Carolina Week, during the school year. She aired stories every week and appeared live throughout the year.
In her free time, Morgan loves to cook and bake. She enjoys hanging out with her dogs and sister, especially on the weekends. Morgan loves to travel with her family and her favorite place to go is Disney World. She has a bucket list of places she wants to travel to, so ask her about it if you get the chance!
