Where were you working before you joined KAKE?
Morgan started as a multi-media journalist for KXII in Sherman, TX. After that she spent three years back in Tulsa as a reporter and fill-in anchor.
What do you like most about Wichita? I love the different districts and the river! I’m from Tulsa where our river is usually empty. I think the river brings a sense of community and calmness. I also love a city the prides itself on shopping local and I enjoy being able to support the small businesses throughout Wichita.
What’s something interesting and fun about yourself that people may not know? I took twirling lessons when I was a child, and I’ve still got some moves down. Haha!
Who is your favorite music artist? This is a tough one for me. I would have to say Justin Timberlake because he’s creative with his music and style. He has soul mixed with some pop. He has country mixed with blues. Who can avoid dancing while driving when a Justin Timberlake song comes on? No one!
What did you earn your Emmy for? I won an Emmy while reporting on a deadly tornado that passed through Mannford, Sand Springs and Tulsa, Oklahoma in 2015.
What’s the hardest part of your job? The hardest part of my job is meeting people in their most vulnerable state and under difficult circumstances. I know it isn’t always easy to open up to a reporter. I so appreciate the people I meet for trusting me to share their stories.
What is your favorite genre of music to listen to? Pop, hip hop, country, 90s. I love most genres.
