- WYFF News 4Anchor, present
Carol is a native of Michigan's Upper Peninsula, and got her degree in Mass Communications from Northern Michigan University at Marquette. She also spent part of her senior year at Richmond College in England, studying British Mass Media.
Carol worked as an anchor/reporter in Marquette, Michigan and Rochester, New York. A brush with frostbite in Rochester made her realize living in a warmer climate might suit her better after all, and she happily accepted an anchor job at WYFF New 4 in 1985.
After specializing in crime and business reporting, she found her niche in health and medical reporting. Carol has won a number of awards, including a 2009 Peabody award for her work on “Chronicle: Paul’s Gift.” She’s also won several Emmys, three National Headliner Awards, and the Champion-Tuck Economics Prize for Business Reporting for a series she did on the textile industry in Taiwan and Hong Kong.
In 2007, the South Carolina Broadcaster's Association awarded her one of its highest honors, the Masters Award. It "acknowledges lifetime achievements of on-air broadcasters who have made significant contributions to broadcasting in South Carolina and who personify high broadcast industry standards within their communities."
Carol shares the news desk with her co-anchor Michael Cogdill each weeknight at 6 and 11. She continues to report on health and medical issues through her popular feature "4 Your Health."
Carol has two grown children. At home, you'll find her in the kitchen cooking, especially Italian and Scandinavian dishes. She's working on a Master's degree in nutrition and health education, so Carol's also worrying about calories and nutrient counts while she's cooking.
Carol is a member of the alto section in her church choir, where she enjoys singing Renaissance music. She also loves to read, and can usually be found with the Kindle app in hand. She spends a lot of time cooking, collects Norwegian rosemaling, hikes and swims.
