Executive Vice President of CNN Worldwide

At CNN, Morse manages U.S. newsgathering and the D.C. bureau operations, including all political coverage. He is also the general manager of CNN Digital Worldwide, and is credited with expanding the network's off-platform publishing channels like Snapchat Discover. Jeff Zucker wrote in the staff memo announcing Morse's hire that Morse's role connects the network's digital and television newsgathering efforts in a way all news organizations should.

Co-Founder of Great Big Story

Morse co-founded Great Big Story, conceiving it as a way to reach new audiences in new ways separate from CNN. The start-up launched in October 2015 and was clear to distinguish itself as a social and mobile-first video streaming network not focused on news content.

Head of Bloomberg TV

Prior to joining CNN, Morse was the head of the United States section of Bloomberg TV. While at Bloomberg, he launched a new programming slate, built up the network's technology coverage and the San Francisco Bureau. Foreshadowing his career at CNN, he also spearheaded Bloomberg's push into digital video and produced the network's first Presidential Debate.

Career at ABC

Morse's first position when beginning his 15-year career at ABC News was as a desk assistant at the Washington bureau. Later he has filled positions as producer in the London bureau and as ABC's Asia bureau chief and producer. Morse was also the Executive Producer of Good Morning America Weekend and oversaw ABC News’ digital portfolio, including ABCNews.com, ABC News Now, the network’s 24-hour broadband channel, and its iPad and iPhone applications in the days of their infancy.

Education

Morse graduated from Cornell University, where he majored in government and was the editor-in-chief of the Cornell Daily Sun. He attended the Landon School, an independent boys day school, located in Bethesda, Maryland for his grade school education.
