DeMarco Morgan co-anchors the 5 p.m., 6 p.m. and 11 p.m. newscasts weeknights on 11Alive. Since a child, Morgan wanted to be a news anchor. A dream that started while watching the space challenger blast in 1986.
He did poorly in high school, so his teacher suggested he find a vocational career because he didn’t speak or write well. Motivated to defeat his high school teacher’s predictions, he went on to Jackson State University. Morgan began his broadcasting career as a producer for the CBS affiliate in Jackson, MS before graduating with honors from Jackson State University.
His first stint in the Big Apple would take place while working on his Master's Degree at Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism. During his matriculation, he covered the Sept. 11 terror attacks along with a variety of local and national stories.
During his career, he has interviewed a list of notables from former U.S. President Bill Clinton to Africa's first elected female Head of State. He has also covered a wide range of stories from presidential elections and corporate scandals.
