Moses Small joined ABC 10 News as a Multimedia Journalist in 2022. He was born in Birmingham, Ala. and raised in Portland, Maine. He's elated to spend time in San Diego and learn more about the community.

As an adopted African American who grew up in a white family, Moses grew connected to storytelling from a young age. Throughout childhood, he used stories to connect to his Kenyan heritage. This culminated when he traveled to Nairobi, Kenya to meet his biological family in 2018.

Moses graduated from the Honors and Broadcast Journalism programs at Emerson College in Boston with a minor in Global and Post-Colonial Studies.

After internships at ABC WCVB-TV 5 in Needham, MA, and Dateline NBC in Los Angeles, he fulfilled a lifelong dream to move to California.

Moses started off his career at KGET-17 News in Bakersfield, CA as a reporter, forecaster and weekend anchor. He enjoys a range of stories, from breaking wildfire coverage to a deep dive into Bakersfield's Sikh-Punjabi community. He also earned an Emmy nomination in 2021 for his work as an anchor, producer and forecaster in Bakersfield.

He takes pride in his versatility, earning a promotion to become KGTV’s evening weekend weather anchor just a month after joining the station. He has helped the Pinpoint Weather Team cover extreme conditions ranging from Hurricane Kay to the Jan. 2024 storms.

Moses has a vast array of knowledge about foster care, Black communities, weather and climate. Moses grew up adopted, connecting to his Black community through storytelling. He is also KGTV’s weekend evening weather anchor, with several years of experience in weather forecasting. Moses plans to heighten coverage in these areas by cultivating connections in the community.

In his free time, Moses is an avid musician and animal lover. He grew up playing violin and drums, more recently venturing into studio engineering and electronic music production. Moses has two cats, named Scruffy and Luna.
