While working as a reporter and producer at WKBT-DT in La Crosse, WI, Carrie had the opportunity to fill-in anchor on almost every show. She anchored the two-hour morning show multiple times as well as the noon show, 10 PM newscast and evening newscasts. During the second half of her contract she moved into the weekend anchor position, producing and anchoring each show.
Carrie enjoyed the process of telling a good story through broadcast news. Whether it was bringing important information to light or sharing an inspiring act of kindness, she took on each story with a commitment to the facts. Her role as reporter and producer allowed her to quickly understand the power of a story told well.
