Erin Morgan co-anchors the morning and midday newscasts at WMBB News 13. She loves to help the Panhandle wake up bright and early every weekday beginning at 4:30 a.m.
She ultimately returned to Panama City in January of 2020 to become the morning anchor. However, Erin originally came to News 13 in May of 2017. She began as a general assignment multimedia journalist, before taking over as morning reporter in September of 2018. During this time, she also was a fill-in anchor for the morning newscasts and found a love for helping people wake up with a smile on their faces.
As a reporter at News 13, Erin covered controversial stories within local government and was a part of extensive team coverage during, before, and after Hurricane Michael. She also helped tell the stories of those impacted by the category five storm and was a crucial part of getting information to the hardest-hit areas.
Before coming back to Panama City, Erin was in Memphis, Tennessee where she was a reporter and anchor. While in Memphis, Erin covered several national stories including the multi-day search for a prison escapee and accused killer, the world’s first voice box reconstruction, and devastating tornadoes in DeSoto County, Mississippi. She also co-anchored the weekend morning newscasts, which led her to her passion for being behind the anchor desk.
Erin is a proud Tennessee Volunteer. She graduated from The University of Tennessee with a B.S. in journalism and electronic media.
While in college, Erin reported for the university’s on-campus newscast UT TODAY. She also spent over a year interning and working part-time as a visual storyteller at a tv station in Knoxville, Tennessee.
When she’s not working, you can find Erin spending a lot of time with her miniature dachshund, Gus! She also enjoys spending her free time with loved ones, on the beach, or traveling.
If you have a story idea, or if you’d like to just say hi – she’d love to hear from you!
