Evening anchor, Morgan Hoover is excited to be joining the WNKY 40 News team. She is coming to the bluegrass state all the way from Anchorage, Alaska.
She spent the past year in the last frontier covering Alaska’s many wildfires and uncovering problems within the state’s budget.
The middle Tennessee native is thrilled to be back in the south and away from the snow-covered grounds of Alaska.
Morgan is a graduate of the University of North Alabama, where she majored in communications with a focus in radio, television and multimedia studies.
While in school, she worked as a journalist at the ABC affiliate station in Huntsville, Alabama.
Growing up, Morgan always had a passion for broadcasting. As a child, she listened to stories from her grandparents, who both worked in the media. She marveled at the stories she heard from her grandfather, who worked as a news anchor in Knoxville, TN. She also spent many afternoons after school at her local newspaper, where her grandmother worked.
Morgan also has a background in radio broadcasting, a passion that she shares with her fiancé, Kenny, who works in the business. She has spent many days running around her local radio station in Pulaski, TN, where her father hosts a weekly show.
In her spare time, when she is not exploring around the Bowling Green community, she enjoys cooking and visiting new restaurants. Morgan also loves going on walks with Bruno Mars (her Yorkie pup).
