20 Questions with Morgan Assenmacher

On the other side of the coast, our California dreamin’ Fishie, Morgan Assenmacher is living her best Cali girl life in sunny Southern California.

A true team player with many talents – whether it’s scoring big media hits or devouring a tasty cheeseburger, Morgan’s energy is contagious – always dedicating her all to everything she does. Working on west coast time doesn’t stop Morgan from delivering exceptional work and counsel to her teams.

A dog mom to her precious Irish Setter, Nellie, you can find Morgan enjoying the outdoors with her pup and fiancé – always down for an adventure or maybe even enjoying a nice stiff cocktail on a Friday night, catching up on her latest shows.

Check out some fun questions below and learn a little bit more about Morgan!

Work you and personal you likely differ slightly. So how would your friends describe you?
I try to show my true colors at work, but I’m probably a bit more reserved. I think my friends would describe me as the most outgoing and definitely the one that likes to crack jokes.

And how would Lorne describe you?
A team player! And hopefully, he recognizes that I’m a hard worker and that I take pride in my work.

Bookworm or TV addict?
Huge bookworm during the height of COVID, but don’t have as much time to read these days. I wind down with TV every night, so I guess more of a TV addict.

What’s your funniest Fish memory?
Summer Fun and getting to meet everyone was really fun. Can’t wait to see everyone again at Fishmas!

If you were Lorne for a day, what would you do?
You get a bonus! You get a bonus! We all get a bonus!

Early bird or night owl?
Night owl!

What are you currently binge watching?
Just finished The Bear and House of the Dragon…but for those looking for a show, some of my favorites include Succession, Halt and Catch Fire, and True Detective.

Tacos – hard shell or soft shell?
Soft for sure, especially a homemade flour tortilla. Our tacos are pretty renowned out in California, but we don’t have queso dip which is just the worst!

If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?
I wish I was better at Excel and knew all the cool formulas and tricks and whatnot.

If it were up to you, what would your song selection be for conference line hold music?
This Is How We Do It by Montell Jordan – I feel like it would get the team pumped up for the discussion.

Bloody Mary or Mimosa? And you can’t say both, although I’d absolutely respect it.
Spicy Bloody Mary with a pickle!

You can bring anyone as a date to a dinner party, dead or alive, who’s your plus one?
Guy Fieri…duh.

We know you can’t sing, but what’s your go-to karaoke song?
Creed – Higher (Cowboys halftime show anyone?) or With Arms Wide Open. Basically, I love to envision myself as Scott Stapp and just really let it rip!

What’s your party trick?
I’m incredibly good at Irish goodbyes…I like to make sure I leave and get food before everything closes.

Pick your poison – straight shot or mixed cocktail?
Mixed cocktail. The only shot I “enjoy” is a pickle-back.

Amy Poehler or Amy Schumer?

If you could spend a year living anywhere in the world, where would it be?
Amsterdam…Amazing food and some of the kindest people.

When was the last time you told a lie? And if you say you don’t lie, then your answer should be “right this second.”
Literally, every weekend I make up excuses so I can sit inside and watch movies and veg on Friday nights. I don’t even know why I consider making plans for Fridays…it ain’t gonna happen!

Besides an ice-cold cocktail, what motivates you?
My landlord asking for his rent check every month…kidding…My fiancé (daw) and the desire to provide a decent life for my dog.

If your name were an acronym, what would it stand for?
Georgia girl
Not athletic
