Illinois Anchor Takes Investigative Job in Atlanta

By Kevin Eck 

Kristin Crowley, an anchor at Rockford, Ill. NBC affiliate WREX, will join Atlanta NBC affiliate WXIA as an investigative reporter.

The Rockford Register-Star said Crowley will contribute to The Reveal, WXIA’s award-winning weekly show that focuses on equality and justice issues along with watchdog journalism.

“I’m incredibly honored to join the investigative team at 11Alive,” Crowley said in a news release. “Their unrelenting work to find justice and truth is what journalism is all about, and it’s exactly what I want to be a part of.”

Crowley started at WREX in 2013 as the 5, 6, and 10 p.m. anchor.  Before that, she worked at WSIL in Carterville, Ill.

Her last day at WREX will be March 31, but Crowley’s ties to the Illinois station won’t end once she moves. She is married to WREX vp and general manager Josh Morgan.
