Alison Morris joins Fox 5 /WNYW from FoxCT/ WTIC, where she most recently anchored the 5pm, 10pm, and 11pm news. During her tenure in Hartford, Morris was nominated for two Emmy awards for her coverage of the Sandy Hook Tragedy and The World Series. She also led the station's coverage of Super Bowl XLVIII in New York. She started as a weekend anchor and consumer reporter for both FoxCT and The Hartford Courant.

Morris got her start in journalism in Paris, France where she wrote for the Wall Street Journal Europe and reported on the French Stock Market (The CAC-40) for CNBC Europe.
