Media[edit] Morrison is a writer for the Los Angeles Times, with the weekly 'Patt Morrison Asks' column,[2] and received the Joseph M. Quinn award in 2000 from the Los Angeles Press Club for lifetime achievement.[3] In 2006 she began hosting the eponymous public radio program 'Patt Morrison,' a 2-hour weekday interview-talk program on NPR affiliate KPCC. Her program was dropped in August 2012.[4] Morrison has been a frequent commentator on National Public Radio since 1994, BBC radio and TV, and The Huffington Post blog. She also founded the PBS daily local news 'Life & Times' public television program, and co-hosted it on KCET-TV from 1993 to 2001.[5][6] She won six Emmys and 6 Golden Mike awards for the program.[3] Currently, Morrison fills in as the host of KPCC's "AirTalk" when the show's regular host, Larry Mantle, is unable to do the show.

She identifies herself as a lacto vegetarian. Pink's Hot Dogs, a Hollywood landmark and establishment known for naming unique hot dog and topping combinations after local cultural icons, has named the vegetarian 'Patt Morrison Baja Veggie hot dog' after her.[9]
