Caroline Wood is a native of Cookeville, Tenn.

She graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of Alabama in 2020. Caroline earned her Bachelor of Arts in Communication with a major in News Media and a Minor in Political Science.

During her time in college, Caroline had the opportunity to intern at WVLT-TV in Knoxville, Tenn., and WVUA 23 News in Tuscaloosa, Ala. These two internships helped her develop a passion for telling stories within her community.

When she’s not out covering stories, Caroline loves spending time with her dog. She also loves watching college football, going to the lake, hanging out with friends and family and listening to live music.

Caroline is very excited to be in Mississippi and is enjoying exploring the Pine Belt area.
