Morgan was born in Baumstown, Pennsylvania.
Morgan started his career as a graphic artist at KHOL-TV, and in 1953, became a weather forecaster there.
Morgan first drew "Thermo," his trademark drawing of the Sun with eyes and a smile, on his second day of weather forecasts at KHOL. He used Thermo for most of his weather forecasts until greenscreens and computer graphics became the norm for weather broadcasts.
In 1971, he moved to Albuquerque to work at KOAT.
While at KOAT, Morgan did a regular series of reports called "Gardenlore."
He retired from KOAT in November 1999 after a 46-year career. He can still be seen in commercials as a spokesman for an Albuquerque window manufacturer. He also appears in an ad for hearing aids
