Since joining WJHL-TV in July 2004, Nate Morabito has had the privilege of telling the stories of thousands of people who call the Tri-Cities region home.
From President Obama's visits to the area to the 2007 shootings at Virginia Tech, Nate has covered a wide range of topics. As News Channel 11's Community Watchdog he often works on special projects and highlights viewer concerns.
Before moving to the Tri-Cities, Nate spent a year reporting in Brainerd, Minnesota at KAWB-TV. Minnesota's bitter thirty-below temperatures were a big change from the warm weather of Charlotte, North Carolina, his hometown.
Although Nate has lived in the south for most of his life, his roots are in the north. Nate was born in Upstate New York and returned there to attend college at Syracuse University. He graduated from the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications in December 2002 with a Bachelor's Degree in Broadcast Journalism.
Nate bleeds orange, Syracuse Orange that is. He is an avid sports fan and especially enjoys golfing and basketball. More than anything, he enjoys spending time with his family. Nate and his wife both volunteer with the American Cancer Society.
In the past, Nate has interned at WCNC-TV in Charlotte and WKTV in Utica, New York.
Nate won a regional Edward R. Murrow Award for Investigative Reporting in 2013 for uncovering a local restaurant's failure to pay its employees.
The Tennessee Associated Press Broadcasters has named him Best Television Reporter three times and has recognized him for his investigative reporting. The Tennessee Board of Probation and Parole also honored him with the 2012 "Voice of the Victim" award.
