Reporter/MMJ

Caroline Linch joined the WTVM news team as a reporter/multimedia journalist in January 2021. She is a graduate of Arizona State University at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism, where she earned her Bachelor of Arts in Broadcast Journalism with a minor in Film and Media Production.

Although she was born and raised in Arizona, Caroline’s family is originally from Lanett, Alabama – where she now currently resides. After leaving Alabama to go to school in Arizona, she realized how much she missed Alabama’s Southern hospitality and wanted to come back home.

While at Arizona State University, Caroline was a broadcast reporter for Cronkite News, an affiliate of Arizona PBS – where she was able to cover the 2020 election, several political rallies, coronavirus, and even Arizona’s current efforts of improving sustainability and conservation.
