Mary Morse Vasquez grew up in the Midwest but moved to Arizona at the age of 18. During her senior year at NAU she heard about an internship and job opportunity at Channel 10, the then CBS affiliate – now FOX 10. Little did she know walking through the doors on that first day that this TV station would be a major part of her life for the next 33 years. Morse Vasquez spent a few years producing evening newscasts, but soon realized that morning television was her true calling. As Executive Producer of the morning show from 1994 to 2019, she worked with what she calls some of the most talented, hard-working people in the industry. “This amazing career provided me the opportunity to write and produce stories about events that have shaped our lives and for that, I will always be grateful,” said Morse Vasquez
Recently retired, she no longer sets the alarm for 2:30 a.m. (Woohoo!) She now watches the news and morning show from her home in Payson where she lives with her husband.
