morganCongratulations to 13 News Today meteorologist Morgan Kolkmeyer. She joined WREX in Rockford Illinois as an intern. Fast forward 4 years and she’s heading to WGN in Chicago.

“Making the jump from Rockford to Chicago is a dream come true for many young journalists,” said Josh Morgan, News Director at 13 WREX. “Morgan has the talent and the drive to make this jump a success.”

Kolkmeyer, a Rockford-native, has served as the morning show meteorologist at 13 WREX since August 2014. She was a part of two Emmy Award-winning morning newscasts in 2015 and 2016.

She is a 2009 graduate of Harlem High School and a 2013 graduate of Northern Illinois University. Before joining WREX in 2014, Kolkmeyer worked for KQDS in Duluth, Minnesota. She was also an intern at 13 WREX before starting her professional career.

Kolkmeyer will join WGN as a weekday meteorologist for the 4 a.m.-6 a.m. portion of WGN Morning News. Her success is just one example of how you can grow your career with Quincy Media.
