Morey Hershgordon joined the 12 Sports team as a reporter in June 2018. He was promoted to weekend sports anchor in March 2020.
Morey quickly experienced New England’s sports dominance. In one calendar year, he covered the 2018 Red Sox World Series Championship, followed the Patriots to their Super Bowl LIII win over the Rams, and traveled to St. Louis for the 2019 Stanley Cup Final. Locally, Morey covered the Providence College men’s hockey team’s run to the 2019 Frozen Four and provided market-leading coverage from the 2019 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” in the state. 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. Some highlights included live coverage from the 2017 U.S. Open at Erin Hills and the 2017 Big Ten Championship football game at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, IN.
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 in May 2017. During his time, he served as vice president and sports director for Q30, the university’s television station. Under his leadership, Q30 received national recognition as the CMA’s “College Television Station of the Year.”
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, checking out local breweries, and aiming for his first hole-in-one!
