Caroline Hecker joined the WIS team as a reporter in January 2018.

Prior to working in Columbia, Caroline worked for three years as weekend anchor/MMJ at WXOW in La Crosse, Wisconsin. While there, she covered a wide variety of stories including historic flooding, opioid abuse at the Tomah VA and multiple presidential candidate visits.

Caroline is a graduate of the University of Missouri where she earned a degree in broadcast journalism (Go Tigers!). 

Having spent the last several years suffering through brutal Wisconsin winters, she’s looking forward to some warmer weather in the Palmetto State!
