Morey Hershgordon is the Sports Director at WPRI 12 and FOX Providence.
He joined the 12 Sports team in June 2018. He previously worked as both a reporter and weekend sports anchor.
Morey quickly experienced the championship culture in New England. He covered the Red Sox in the World Series, the Patriots’ Super Bowl LIII win over the Rams, and the Bruins’ run to Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final against the Blues. Locally, he followed Providence’s run to the Frozen Four and provided market-leading coverage from the Little League World Series.
Prior to WPRI, Morey was a sports anchor/reporter at WAOW-TV in Wausau, WI, 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 regularly covered the Milwaukee Brewers, Milwaukee Bucks, and Wisconsin Badgers.
In addition to television, Morey also 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 Sixteen, 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 in the Ocean State, playing pickup basketball, and aiming for his first hole-in-one!
