DeMarco Morgan joined 11Alive in January 2012. He co-anchors the 6pm newscast weeknights with Brenda Wood and reports for the 11pm nightly broadcast.
Morgan arrived shortly after the new year from NBC New York where he anchored weekends for both News 4 New York and Today in New York and occasionally anchored news cut-ins for MSNBC.
With a solid record of experience on the desk and in the field, Morgan has worked as an anchor and reporter in a number of television markets. He co-anchored the "South Florida Nightly News" weeknights at 7 p.m. and 11 p.m. for the NBC affiliate in Miami and anchored weekend mornings for the ABC station in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
Since joining the 11Alive news team, he has covered a wide range of stories - both local and national. Morgan field anchored live coverage from Sanford, Florida at the first national rally after the shooting death of Trayvon Martin. He also anchored live coverage from the nation's capital the day of President Obama's second inauguration. Morgan has shown his versatility in coverage by reporting live from the Braves' spring training, to kicking off a campaign at Spelman College for an 11-year-old girl in need of a bone marrow transplant. He provided a series of reports.
Morgan recently broke the story of a second and more recent criminal investigation into the infamous House of Prayer.

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. Morgan's reporting beat took him through the streets of Brooklyn, parts of Queens, Manhattan and Harlem in his efforts to find fascinating stories about everyday New Yorkers.
After graduation, Morgan landed his first reporting job at the place where it all started - the CBS affiliate WJTV in Jackson, Mississippi.
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 to the nation's first civil-rights era murder prosecution by federal authorities.
Morgan is a strong advocate of community service. He has volunteered with Big Brothers Big Sisters, 100 Black Men of America, Inc., the American Cancer Society, The Bachmann Strauss Dystonia and Parkinsons Foundation, Sharp Literacy, Inc., served on the board of managers for the YMCA, and is a proud member of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. In 2006, he received the NABJ National Community Service Award.
While in Milwaukee, Morgan was the Honorary Grand Marshal two years in a row for the United Negro College Fund. He has served as a spokesperson for the Thurgood Marshall College Fund based in New York City, which has provided more than $100 million in scholarships to students attending public historically black Colleges and Universities.
Morgan's speaking abilities have taken him across the country from Los Angeles to the nation's capital, hosting receptions at the Congressional Black Caucus conventions and serving as the 2010 commencement speaker for Jackson State University's largest graduating class in its 135 year history.
While a student at Columbia, he helped start the J-School's student chapter of the National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ). Morgan taught Journalism at JSU for two years and taught English at Milwaukee Area Technical College.
Morgan has been honored with several broadcasting awards. Morgan was named one of the only African Americans ranked in the nation's Top Ten Collegiate Journalists in the country in 2001 by Scripps Howard and named one of Ebony Magazine's Top 30 Future Young Leaders of America in 2006. He was named one of South Florida Magazine's top 40 most influential black professionals in 2008. Morgan was presented the 2009 Thurgood Marshall Prestige Award for his community service here in New York and across the country.
Morgan is excited about his move to Atlanta, GA and says he's currently working on his addiction to Sweet Tea!! "Atlanta has always had a place in my heart," said Morgan.
