Madison Morgan joined WWAY in September 2015 as a reporter using the skills she learned as a graduate from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill’s School of Journalism.
At UNC, Madison volunteered on the set of the campus news show "Carolina Week" for three years and served as the director and a reporter her senior year. After graduating, she spent three months in Washington, DC, interning at ABC News with the Law and Justice Team under the leadership of correspondent Pierre Thomas.
Madison has a passion for travel, history, people and exploring other cultures. While at UNC she had the opportunity to spend a summer in Uganda and study under a NGO that focused on providing clean water to developing countries. She also spent a summer in Ahmedabad, India, teaching in a school. She has taken multiple trips to Honduras teaching and building eco-friendly structures with UNC’s Global Public Health. Madison was privileged to also spend a semester abroad her junior year in Granada, Spain, to focus on Middle Eastern studies, while learning Spanish and Arabic.
When Madison is not reporting or watching news you can find her running or playing soccer, discovering the best local restaurants, enjoying Tar Heel athletics or planning her next trip. She’s excited to explore Wilmington and see what the area has to offer!
