Meteorologist Morgan Strackbein joined the WQAD family in July 2019. She is familiar with the Quad City area as she has relatives who live in Cedar County. Morgan is a Midwest Native who grew up in Indianapolis, Indiana. She attended college at Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana where she obtained her Bachelor of Science in Meteorology and Climatology.
Growing up, Morgan had to learn to love weather as it first started out with a fear of storms as a young child. She turned that fear into passion and instead of hiding from storms, she chases them!
When she is not forecasting the weather she loves to be outdoors and by the water. Morgan is excited to be near the Mississippi River and explore more around the area. This is her first job in the broadcast industry and she couldn’t be more excited to work with an amazing station!
