Morgan Young

Morgan joined the WSFA 12 News team in June 2016 as a general assignment reporter and anchor. She will take over anchoring the Sunday edition of Today in Alabama. Before relocating to the River Region, Morgan spent two years as a reporter and anchor for KOMU 8 News, the NBC-affiliate in Columbia, Missouri. At KOMU, Morgan covered social justice, local business and investigative health stories. Morgan graduated with honors from the University of Missouri in May 2016 with a degree in broadcast journalism and minors in business and textile and apparel management. During her time at Mizzou, Morgan served on the executive board of the National Association of Black Journalists, was a member of the National Society of Collegiate Scholars and served as president on the Student Society of News Design. She was also asked to speak at the National Press Club in Washington D.C. about covering social justice issues on MU’s campus. As a lover of fashion, Morgan spends her free time blogging about style and lifestyle trends. She is also an avid reader who loves to travel, try new recipes and visit new restaurants (…and post pictures of her food on Instagram).
