Jackie Morlock joined the WTKR news team in March 2013.

She credits her work with the NBC 10 Investigators in Philadelphia as the motivation leading to her on-air broadcasting career. Following a 2007 summer internship at WCAU in Philadelphia, she worked full-time throughout her senior year of college as a researcher and digital content producer for the award-winning NBC 10 investigative team. Much of her job involved researching companies that were the subject of consumer complaints, and even shooting undercover video. In 2009, she earned an Emmy nomination for her undercover work at a nail salon in South Jersey that was using an illegal chemical to apply acrylic nails.

Jackie’s on-air voyage took her 1,900 miles across the country to the Cowboy State of Wyoming where she worked as an anchor/reporter at KCWY, News 13 in Casper. She spent two years shooting and editing her own stories and producing several weekday and weekend newscasts. She also spent two years in Burlington, Vermont solo-anchoring four consecutive hours of morning news at FOX 44/ABC 22.

Being born and raised a Philly girl, she’s happy to be in Hampton Roads living the “city-life” again. She’s also excited to be reporting for NewsChannel 3 where “Taking Action, Getting Results” sums up, exactly, the dedication and follow-through that she gives each and every story.
