Caroline Hicks joined WBTV in September 2017. She is thrilled to be sharing stories in the city where she grew up!

Over the years she has had the opportunity to cover countless breaking news stories and meet incredible people making a difference in the community. She started as a reporter on WBTV News This Morning and currently reports for the 4, 5, and 6pm newscasts with a focus on business, economic, and real estate development reporting.

In addition to reporting, she is the anchor of the weekend morning shows, where she has the opportunity to interview guests from across the viewing area and highlight small business owners. She also anchors the WBTV News Now desk, providing LIVE coverage across social media and streaming platforms.

Before returning to Charlotte, Caroline spent six years in Texas. After graduating from Southern Methodist University, she began her reporting career at KETK-News in Tyler, Texas. During her time there she started her own weekly investigative segment, where she uncovered a ring of illegal gambling practices in the area.

When Caroline is not reporting she enjoys playing tennis, trying new restaurants in Charlotte and boating on the lake! She enjoys seeing the changes the city is going through after spending her middle and high school years living in the area and attending Charlotte Latin School.

Caroline is always looking for story ideas and small businesses to highlight on the weekend morning show. You can reach out to her with ideas at You can also follow her on Facebook at Caroline Hicks WBTV and on Twitter at @CarolineHicksTV.
