And in 2010 and 2011, she was awarded a Daytime Emmy award as part of "TODAY's" recognition as the best morning news program.

Morales began her career in broadcast journalism in 1998 at News 12 - The Bronx, where she shot, produced and edited her own reports. And, she was the morning co-anchor and correspondent at NBC's WVIT in Hartford, Connecticut from 1999 - 2002.

She holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from Rutgers University, New Jersey, with dual majors in journalism and Latin American studies. She was a Phi Beta Kappa and graduated Summa Cum Laude. Morales currently resides in New Jersey with her husband and two sons.

Broadcast live from the historic Studio 3B in Rockefeller Center, the weekly, hour-long newsmagazine will premiere on Monday, October 31 at 10pm and will be built around the week's most provocative events, compelling coverage, and newsmaker interviews.
