Erin Morgan is an AP award-winning journalist who joined the News 2 team as an anchor and reporter in March 2022. She anchors the 4 p.m. newscast Monday-Friday and is also a part of The Investigators team.
Growing up in northern Virginia, Erin was ready to be back on the East Coast. She is also no stranger to the South, as her passion for journalism began while she was an intern at WBIR in Knoxville while getting a degree in Journalism at the University of Tennessee.
Erin began her career as a broadcast journalist in Panama City, Florida in May 2017. As a reporter, she covered controversial stories within local government and was a part of extensive team coverage during, before, and after Hurricane Michael, a historic category-five hurricane that devastated the Florida Panhandle.
Before becoming morning anchor in Panama City, Erin took a job in Memphis, Tennessee as a reporter and anchor. While in Memphis, Erin covered several national stories including the multi-day search for an escaped inmate 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 love for being behind the anchor desk.
As a journalist, Erin has a passion for making a difference. She prides herself on being fair and reporting all sides of the story. She also makes it a priority to immerse herself in the community and tell the stories that matter most to the people who live there.
Erin is excited to call the Lowcountry home and be a part of the News 2 family. She looks forward to getting involved with organizations that support the community.
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 exploring the Lowcountry, being with friends and family, reading a good book 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!
