Morey Hershgordon is the Sports Director at WPRI 12 and FOX Providence. He was named the 2021 NMSA Rhode Island Sportscaster of the Year.
He joined the 12 Sports team in June 2018 and previously worked in the department as both a reporter and weekend sports anchor.
In his first year, Morey quickly experienced the championship culture in New England. He covered the Red Sox World Series run, the Patriots on their way to winning Super Bowl LIII, and the Bruins’ journey to Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final. Locally, he followed Providence College’s run to the Frozen Four and spent a week at the Little League World Series.
Morey recently wrapped up covering PC men’s basketball’s first Big East regular season championship in program history and was on the road with the team chronicling their historic run to the Sweet 16 for the first time in 25 years.
Morey also hosts a number of longform sports shows. In the fall, he leads the station’s regional weekly Patriots pregame show, New England Nation, as well as the postgame show, Patriots Wrap. On Fridays, it’s all about high school football and the Wendy’s Friday Night Blitz. During the winter months, Morey hosts PC Hoops with Coach Cooley, a show highlighting the Friars as well as the local college basketball scene.
Prior to WPRI, Morey was a sports anchor/reporter at WAOW-TV in Wausau, Wisconsin, where he was a finalist for Best Sportscast. Much like New England, Morey was in the heart of football country. He covered the Green Bay Packers for the official Packers station of Central Wisconsin and also covered the Milwaukee Brewers, Milwaukee Bucks, and Wisconsin Badgers.
In addition to television, Morey has extensive experience as a public address announcer. Most prominently, he was the in-arena voice for The Basketball Tournament’s (TBT) Northeast Regional, Sweet 16, and Elite Eight games which were broadcast live on ESPN.
Morey received his Bachelor of Arts in Broadcast Journalism from Quinnipiac University.
Born and raised just outside of Philadelphia, Morey loves calling the East Coast home. In his free time, you’ll find him enjoying the beaches of the Ocean State, playing pickup basketball, and aiming for his first hole-in-one!
