Carlos Morales

News Director

Carlos has worn numerous hats at the station over the years — at one point he was simultaneously the station’s Morning Edition host, news director and a reporter.

He was the local host of Morning Edition from April 2017 to July 2020.

As news director, he has led coverage that won scores of Regional Edward R. Murrow Awards and three National Edward R. Murrows — the most the station has ever received.

Carlos has covered a range of topics, including the impacts of the Trump Administration’s immigration policies, West Texas wildfires, the El Paso shooting, and much more.

Before joining MPR, he was a reporter at KWBU in Waco and worked with the Voces Oral History Project, a group the records the histories of Latina/o World War II veterans.

Originally from El Paso, Texas, Carlos strongly believes in the power of radio to bridge divides.
