Morey Hershgordon, Upper Dublin grad, heading to Boston’s Channel 7 as lead sports anchor

Morey Hershgordon, a graduate of Upper Dublin High School, is heading to Boston’s Channel 7—the ninth-largest television market in the country—as its lead sports anchor this month.

According to The Boston Globe, he’s been at WPRI in Providence, Rhode Island since 2018. He was promoted to sports director in 2021 and named the NMSA Rhode Island Sportscaster of the Year the same year.

Prior to WPRI, Morey spent one year as a sports anchor/reporter at WAOW-TV in Wausau, Wisconsin, where he was a finalist for Best Sportscast.

“Much like Boston, there’s a great sports passion,’’ Hershgordon told The Globe. “Only Philadelphia has lost a lot more through the years.”

He played catcher for the Cardinals throughout high school and received his Bachelor of Arts in Broadcast Journalism from Quinnipiac University.

According to their article, Hershgordon got into broadcasting through his grandfather, who lost his eyesight around age 40.

“When I was a little kid, I’d go over to his house nearby on a Saturday and mute the television and would give him the play-by-play of the Phillies game at 7 o’clock,’’ Hershgordon said. “My grandmother would make us dinner and I’d stay over and then do the same for the Eagles game at 1 o’clock the next day, giving him play-by-play and sideline reports and making up injury updates. And then I’d go back home.

“He had such a big love for sports, and it was such a great way for us to connect and build our relationship through the years,’’ he continued. “He was my best friend. I never had an older brother. He was my rock.”
