NBC’s DeMarco Morgan to Host Harlem YMCA Black Achievers in Industry Gala

DeMarco Morgan is one of my favorite people!  I didn’t realize how much I thoroughly enjoyed watching him as an anchor when he was NBC 4 New York until he left.  Clearly, I didn’t realize what I had got until he was gone.   Now, he’s serving as an anchor at NBC 11 Alive News in Atlanta where I’m sure he’s bringing his incredible sense of humor and engaging big brother-like demeanor to the newscasts.

2b7dcfecb87353cabb6844117cfe7a18As an event host he’s such a joy, because he makes what could be stuffy or marathon events a lighthearted good time with appropriate periods of somberness or seriousness.  His incredible sense of humor and the personal touch that he adds through his own experiences and inspirational words connected to the cause makes you feel like you’re among friends sharing a laugh.  That’s why I was so excited when I read that he’s going to be the host of the Harlem YMCA Black Achievers in Industry Awards on Wednesday, March 13th.

This annual event pays national tribute to the corporate leadership and community service of black achievers in industry and serves as a vehicle for the Harlem YMCA, corporations, and local organizations to partner and provide mentoring programs, scholarships, and other opportunities. These collective efforts fuel a future-leader incubator for the youth and teens of the Harlem community. Read The Rest
