Morgan Chesky – Sam Houston State

As seen on TVNewser

KOMO 4 news anchor Morgan Chesky is making the cross-country trek from the ABC affiliate in Seattle to join NBC News in New York as a full-time correspondent for the network.

NBC News senior vp of worldwide news gathering David Verdi made the announcement official in a note to staff this morning.

In addition to anchoring the weekday evening newscast, Chesky reported breaking news stories for the Sinclair-owned ABC affiliate. He also led a crew on the first west coast flight to Cuba in more than 50 years, which resulted in a week-long series on the island that was honored with a regional Edward R. Murrow award.

Verdi notes:

In 2016, Morgan received a regional Emmy for his work reporting on a cold case involving a young girl who disappeared from the Seattle area in the early ’90s. That same year, Chesky received a regional Emmy recognizing his body of work as a general assignment reporter.

Prior to his time in Seattle, Chesky reported on extreme weather events in Oklahoma. In 2013, he was one of the first reporters on the ground when an EF-5 tornado struck the Oklahoma City suburb of Moore. In the aftermath, Morgan’s work helped to reunite parents with children whose elementary school took a direct hit.

Before moving to Oklahoma, the Sam Houston State graduate was a reporter at KVUE News in Austin and KLTV in Tyler, Texas where he covered stories including the mass shooting at Fort Hood.
