ROSE EIKLOR

Rose is from New York. She grew up on Long Island and graduated from New York University.

For many years before and throughout college Rose worked with autistic kids. She loved working with the children and brought one to a Mets game for his birthday. She always felt like they were teaching her instead of her teaching them. They opened her eyes to new stories and it was then she realized she wanted to tell the world stories and found a love for news.

During her college career she interned at News 12 Long Island and CBS in New York City.

After graduation Rose worked for WZBN News as a reporter/ anchor in Trenton, New Jersey. She stayed there for a year and truly enjoyed the experience but when the station abruptly shut down, she decided to move and join the Time Warner Cable team.

Rose moved to Rochester shortly after where she stayed for two years. Rose worked in the Batavia bureau at this station and covered three counties by herself. She enjoyed all of the things Rochester had to offer and covered many big stories including snowpacalyse where the area saw seven feet of snow in one night.

After two years at the station Rose had a desire to move to the south and moved to Memphis where she worked at WMC Action News 5 for two years. During this time Rose not only covered Memphis but Mississippi as well. She grew a strong love for the South and decided it was where she wanted to stay.

After two years Rose decided to make the move to Boone, North Carolina, where she fell in love with the mountains. During her free time Rose loves to explore the mountain counties finding new places to fish and hike. Rose's guilty pleasure is sitting on her porch in Boone with a nice cup of tea watching the sunrise. She has found that Boone is a beautiful place with many hidden treasures, and she plans to find them all.   ​
