Angelica Morrison

Angelica A. Morrison is a multimedia journalist with over a decade of experience in the field.

She joined the WBFO-FM staff in April 2016 as the station’s Great Lakes Regional Journalism Collaborative reporter/project coordinator (RJC). The Great Lakes RJC covers a variety of issues, including environmental, economic and lifestyle, along the Great Lakes corridor.

Born and bred in upstate New York, she has a passion for New York State and its inhabitants.

As a child she lived in rural Rochester with corn fields and cows for neighbors. Then moved to a more urban environment on Buffalo’s west side and then back to Rochester (this time as city dwellers). Angelica’s interest in journalism began to sprout in high school when she toured her hometown newspaper the Democrat and Chronicle.

Her adventures in journalism have taken her across the state. After graduating from Buffalo State College, she worked as a reporter for the Lockport Union Sun and Journal, then as a freelance writer for The Buffalo News.

She then trekked across the state to Utica, New York where she worked for several years as a multimedia journalist and web producer for the Observer-Dispatch and then served as a news producer/web producer for the NBC affiliate WKTV News Channel 2.

Angelica returned to Buffalo in the spring of 2014. She reintroduced herself to the public as a freelance journalist for The Buffalo News and The Niagara Gazette.

Angelica’s interests include gardening, eating, shopping, Internet binge watching (mostly Happy Days and Three’s Company on YouTube), knitting, politics, Adirondack camping, finance (researching ways to become a millionaire), loose leaf tea, Star Trek, Marvel Comics, buying local honey (along with other locally grown foods and produce), several gym memberships, free slushy day at 7-Eleven, flying kites, reading (or collecting books with the intention of reading them) and Groupon.
