Around noon yesterday (Thursday, 17 February 2022), Yuripzy Morgan announced that she had an announcement to make.

The social media post announcing the announcement has since picked up almost 150 likes, and even more comments, wishing Morgan well on her next adventure.

Many have expressed their sadness at having to say goodbye to Morgan’s “logical, direct but mindful” analysis.

However, the post is currently unavailable to view. Facebook suggests that it is because the owner “changed who can see it, or it’s been deleted”.

“Yuripzy, I am crying,” wrote one listener. Another commented: “Bittersweet! I listened to you daily.” 

While Morgan didn’t reveal what her next plans were, several of her listeners wrote that they hoped Yuripzy would “pursue political aspirations”, or words to that effect.

“Hope we see you in Maryland politics in the near future”; “You are awesome, super smart and [I] hope you are running for office in Maryland”; and so on.

It wouldn’t be the first time Morgan entered a political race

In 2016, Yuripzy Morgan was a Republican candidate for election to represent the 2nd congressional district of Maryland. However, she lost to Pat McDonough in the primary.

In the end, the Democrats took the district anyway, with 62% of the vote. McDonough ran against Democrat Dutch Ruppersberger, the incumbent, and Kristin Kasprzak, a Libertarian candidate.

Yuripzy Morgan was fourth out of five candidates in the Republican primary. She took 5.7% of the votes against McDonough’s 71.4%.

Morgan attended the University of Maryland School of Law. Before starting her career in radio, she worked as a legal intern, a research assistant and a law clerk.
