Morgan anchors the Emmy-award winning WCCB News @ Ten. She also reports on a regular basis, covering topics like local crime, politics and neighborhood issues.

Morgan travels for special assignments and breaking news, to places like Washington DC, to cover the Lying in Honor of the late Rev. Billy Graham, to Charlottesville to cover the deadly white nationalist rally, to Boston to cover new active shooter alert technology, and to San Francisco, to cover the Carolina Panthers 2016 Super Bowl run.

Her series, “The Get with Morgan Fogarty,” features in-depth interviews with celebrities and newsmakers, including Carolina Panthers Quarterback Cam Newton, Elevation Church Pastor Steven Furtick, Bachelorette Emily Maynard, NASCAR’s Dale Earnhardt, Jr. and North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper.

Morgan has established herself as an animal welfare advocate and she has earned the trust of animal lovers in our community, who turn to her when they need to raise awareness about animal issues.

Morgan hosts and moderates WCCB News Edge at 10:30, alongside regular panelists Matt Harris, Ashley Anderson and Tremaine “QCB” Sloane. The Edge is Charlotte’s premiere news-magazine show and features in-depth conversation about news, sports, politics and pop culture.

Morgan has won numerous awards throughout her career including several from the Radio Television Digital News Association of the Carolinas. In 2010, she earned 1st Place for her series called “Pit Bull Problems.” The same year, she earned 2nd place in the North Carolina TV Reporter of the Year division. In 2009, Morgan won 1st place in the health/medicine division for a story about so-called “Chicken Pox Parties.” Over the years, Charlotte area viewers have voted her “favorite anchor,” “best TV anchor” and more in local publications. In 2012, she was named one of Charlotte’s “Top 30 Under 30 Future Leaders.” In the same year, she won the National Athletic Trainers’ Association Excellence in Sports Medicine Reporting Award for her report on concussions in Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools.

Even though she was born a Yankee, Morgan has now lived in Charlotte longer than she’s lived anywhere else. She considers Charlotte “home” and can’t imagine leaving (she tried once, in 2013, went to New York City, and quickly returned!).

Morgan, her husband and their two children share their home with three dogs: two French bulldogs, Winston and Etta (a rescue) and a Doberman, Rachel (also a rescue).
