Carly started her career in 2015 in Lafayette, Louisiana at our sister station KLFY News 10. She reported on a wide range of national news stories including the Grand Theatre shooting, the ambush shooting of Baton Rouge Police Officers and the 2016 floods.

During her time in Baton Rouge, she covered Hurricanes Laura, Delta and Ida, numerous elections, festivals and Mardi Gras.

While she loves the Louisiana culture and cuisine, there truly is no place like home. Carly is excited to get back to her roots and connect with the community that helped shape who she is today.
