Most viewers have fallen in love with female news anchor Natalie Morales on the Today Show. However, it took her a long time to get there! She earned her start on the small local station WVIT-TV in Hartford, Connecticut, where she reported on everything from Hurricane Floyd to the 9/11 attacks. After moving up the ranks, Morales continued on to MSNBC, before finally winning a spot on Today. Meanwhile, she also pops on plenty of other hit news programs, like NBC Nightly News and Dateline.
Behind the scenes, Morales has won plenty of awards, including the “Groundbreaking Latina in Media” award from Catalina Magazine in 2007. Just two years later People en Español named her number one in its “Fifty Most Beautiful People!”
