When Morris went to work for the veteran crime-stopper series America's Most Wanted, the gig combined his experience in media with his past employment in law enforcement. Originally a journalist covering national news for channels such as the Independent Network News and CNN, Morris changed his career path to work as a contract employee for the U.S. State Department's antiterrorism Embassy Task Group, and was stationed both stateside and overseas. In 1993 he joined America's Most Wanted as a segment producer and three years later made his on-air debut as a reporter, profiling — and ultimately helping capture — criminals. In addition to his America's Most Wanted duties, Morris has appeared on numerous shows, including CNN Showbiz Tonight, Fox & Friends and Entertainment Tonight, and he has contributed his opinions as a versatile host on XM Satellite Radio's popular series, The Capital Hill Blues.
