Marcus Moore named ABC News London based correspondent


ABC News president Kim Godwin sent the following note to the news division announcing that Dallas-based correspondent Marcus Moore is beginning a new role as a foreign correspondent based in London.

Before ABC News, Moore worked in Texas TV news for WFAA 8 DFW and KBTX News 3 Bryan-College Station (and stations outside of TX). 

Here is Godwin's internal memo to the ABC News staff:


"I am excited to share that Marcus Moore will begin a new role next week as a foreign correspondent based in London.  

For his new position, Marcus will move across the pond from Texas, where he’s been a vital part of our news division since 2017, serving as a Dallas-based correspondent.  

Marcus is a talented reporter who brings sharp coverage to all of our programs and platforms, and he is no stranger to traveling the globe. He recently reported from Kyiv, Ukraine, and the Poland border on the ongoing war; from Guatemala and Mexico on families migrating and risking their lives in the process; and from the eye of Hurricane Dorian, as the category 5 storm devastated Marsh Harbour, Bahamas. He’s also reported on the assassination of former President of Haiti Jovenel Moïse and kidnapped missionaries from Haiti, on pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong, and on the deadly White Island volcano eruption in New Zealand.  

Marcus is an Emmy Award winner who has also been on top of defining moments here at home, including the protests surrounding the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis and the deadly mass shootings in Uvalde, El Paso, Santa Fe and Sutherland Springs, Texas. Marcus is fluent in Spanish and Russian and before ABC, he was an anchor and reporter at WFAA, our Dallas affiliate. At WFAA, he reported on impactful stories including the November 2015 Paris attacks and filed reports on the Syrian refugee crisis from Istanbul, Turkey. While working as a reporter for ABC affiliate KMBC in Kansas City, he covered the 2010 rescue of 33 trapped miners in Chile and as a reporter for WAPT in Jackson, he broadcasted live as Hurricane Katrina battered the gulf coast. Marcus landed his first TV gig at just 16 years old at KBTX in Bryan, Texas, as a studio camera operator, working his way up to weekend reporter by age 18.

We are so lucky that Marcus is part of our ABC News family. Please join me in congratulating him on his new, well-deserved position!"
