Morey Hershgordon joined the Eyewitness Sports team in June of 2018.
Prior to WPRI, Morey was a Sports Anchor/Reporter in Wausau, WI. Much like New England, Morey was in the heart of football country. He was fortunate enough to cover the Green Bay Packers for the “Official Packers Station” of Central Wisconsin. He also regularly covered the Milwaukee Brewers, Milwaukee Bucks, Wisconsin Badgers, and high school sports. Some highlights included reporting live from the 2017 U.S. Open and the 2017 Big Ten Championship football game in Indianapolis, IN. Morey was a finalist for “Best Sportscast” in the state in his first year.
In addition to television, Morey also has experience as a public address announcer. For two years, he was the PA announcer 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. During his time there he served as the Vice President and Sports Director for Q30 Television, the university’s television station. Under his leadership, Q30 received national recognition as the CMA’s “College Television Station of the Year”. Morey’s most memorable moments include reporting from the 2017 NCAA women’s basketball tournament during the team’s historic run to the Sweet Sixteen, as well as reporting from the 2016 NCAA men’s ice hockey Frozen Four on the team’s run to the National Championship game.
Born and raised just outside of Philadelphia, Morey is excited to be back on the east coast. In his free time, you’ll find him enjoying the beaches in the ocean state, finding the best restaurants in town and watching any sporting event on television!
