Carrie Vick

Carrie Vick joined News 8 as a Reporter and Producer in December 2011. She was born and raised just outside of Madison, Wis. Her love for "The Dairy State" made choosing a college in Wisconsin an easy decision. She attended the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse where she earned an undergraduate degree in Communication Studies with an emphasis in Organizational and Professional Communication and a minor in Broadcast and Digital Media.

Carrie's passion for journalism grew while at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse. She was the News Director for UW-L's campus TV station and took every opportunity to develop her broadcast skills on campus. She interned as a Reporter and Producer with WMTV NBC 15 in Madison, Wis. the summer of 2011. Carrie then joined the News 8 team as an intern in the Fall of 2011. It didn't take long for her to find herself at home at News 8, officially joining the team as a Reporter and Producer after graduation in December 2011.
