Tara Morgan joined WSYX news as a general assignment reporter in 2012.
Tara's interest in covering the news started when she was a teenager. She was influenced by her parents, who always stay on top of local and national news headlines.
Tara graduated from Sam Houston State University with a BFA in broadcast journalism, working her way through college as a country music DJ.
While Tara enjoyed her time on the radio, it didn't steer Tara away from her dream of working in television news. She got her feet wet in Houston, where she worked behind the scenes on the assignment desk and as a producer. Her first on-air gig was in Corpus Christi, Texas, where her parents still live.
Tara came to Columbus from Richmond, VA, where she covered memorable stories like the D.C. Sniper. While in Richmond, Tara also had an unusual run in with a camel that decided to nibble on her hair with the camera rolling!
While away from work, Tara loves to bake cupcakes -- and of course, eat them too! She even took a cake decorating course to add some pizazz to her sweet treats.
Tara also likes to run, and has competed in one marathon, several half marathons, and numerous 10k's.
Tara has a tuxedo cat named Pickles that demands her attention at home!
