Carolyn Bruck is the definition of versatile.
She's just as comfortable leading breaking news coverage from the anchor desk as she is learning to Hula hoop from a ‘mommy blogger’.
Born in New York City and raised in Los Angeles, Carolyn's a multi-faceted journalist who understands news is ever-changing and evolving— and all about viewer engagement.
It’s why she takes pride in being on top of the newest ways to connect with people and connect people to information.
With her style embracing social media, Carolyn's part of what some would call the ‘new wave’ of broadcast television.
However, make no mistake, her journalism roots are ‘old-school’.
For the past decade, Carolyn’s been working her way up the news ranks, perfecting her skills as a storyteller every step of the way.
She got her start working as a ‘one man band’ at KHSL/KNVN in Redding, California (back before the business adopted the term MMJ)— shooting, editing and reporting the news of the day.
After Redding came Fresno, California at the NBC affiliate KSEE 24 where she quickly became the go-to reporter for live breaking news and in-depth investigative pieces.
Halfway through her time in Fresno, Carolyn was provided a unique opportunity to develop a new half-hour nightly news program to air weekly at 7pm.
Under her guidance, the 7pm newscast became one of the only news programs at the time to make social media activity, viewer-generated content and topics trending online an integral part of the newscast.
Along with the 7pm newscast, Carolyn also anchored the 11pm nightly news at KSEE.
Always looking for a challenge, Carolyn left California for a new adventure in the Midwest.
Carolyn switched time zones and time slots when she became the weekday morning anchor on Good Day Columbus for the ABC and Fox affiliates in Columbus, Ohio.
Anchoring 4 1/2 hours of programming for 2 different affiliates gave Carolyn the opportunity to not only hone her skills as a hard news anchor but to also showcase other sides of her personality.
In August 2015, Carolyn made the move to Charlotte, North Carolina where she currently anchors the morning show for the NBC affilliate.
