Morris retired back in 2012 after 55 years of broadcasting starting out in radio in 1945 in Minnesota, then moving to KSTP (ABC) in 1955 where he did weather and in 1971 he moved to Albuquerque working for KOB (NBC) and later KOAT (ABC).

We are told he’s still quite the outdoors-man, fishing and hunting across New Mexico.

Happy Birthday Johnny!
