Approximately two weeks ago Craig “Moose” Morgan, 60, became the object of investigation by local law enforcement in Hopkins County which was turned over to Texas Rangers. He was arrested Monday, March 20 for Felony 3 Theft (more than $2,500 but less than $30,000) with a $20,000 bond and Giving False Statement to Obtain Property or Credit with $10,000 bond. Morgan has made bail and was released from the Hopkins County Jail.

He and his wife, Dawn Morgan, who reside in Birthright, have both been terminated from their positions at The Way Radio Group in Sulphur Springs to which “Moose” was the host of his own morning show on Thunder Country 107.1 FM and also the former President of the Group.

According to reports from KSST radio, the “charges stem from Morgan’s mismanagement” of funds including several “financial discrepancies” found by primary shareholders. The investigation of both Moose and Dawn Morgan continue by the Texas Rangers.

In a press release from the owners and staff of The Way Radio Group LLC explained they will continue to strive to bring Hopkins County and nearby areas the best quality of radio, while still maintaining relationships with local businesses, listeners and community.

Morgan is also no longer the North Hopkins Fire Department Chief and no longer associated with the department as stated in a previous press release issued by the County. North Hopkins Fire Department volunteer fire fighter Bobby Harris with Harris Electric was recently named Interim Fire Chief. Dawn Morgan also oversaw the American Red Cross organization but has been replaced by Jeff Cuttingham, retired law enforcement officer. The American Red Cross vehicles will remain at the Hopkins County Sheriff’s Office.
