Caroline Blair was born and raised in North Carolina and is proud to call the Tar Heel State home. With friends and family from the mountains to the coast, she feels a personal connection when delivering news about the state and its people. Caroline has lived in many other places and enjoys traveling the world, but the welcoming people and inclusive culture of North Carolina drive her passion for providing vital information that helps enhance her viewers’ daily lives.
Caroline began her career as a journalist in New York, then made her way to Georgia and Florida before settling back home in North Carolina, where she has spent the last 15 years of her career with Spectrum News.
There have been many proud moments in Caroline's distinguished career. Most recently, Caroline was nominated for two Emmy Awards for her extensive coverage of George Floyd's memorial service, and for her coverage of Coach K's final home game at Duke University. She and her fellow Spectrum News 1 colleagues were also recognized as one of 2022's Best Anchor Teams by the Radio Television Digital News Association of the Carolinas.
Her most vibrant memory, however, was the rare opportunity to sit down for an interview with the late artist and civil rights icon, Maya Angelou. Caroline is also one of the founding producers and anchors of Spectrum’s “In Depth” interview features, which allow her to conduct many meaningful conversations with a wide range of North Carolina’s most important community partners, influencers, politicians, leaders, and celebrities.
A very special place in Caroline’s heart is reserved for the University of North Carolina at Greensboro’s Division 1 Women’s Basketball Team. She attended the university on a full athletic scholarship and graduated with All-Academic Southern Conference honors. She was recently recognized by the university for her outstanding career in delivering fact-based journalism.
Caroline is very active in the community and volunteers for numerous organizations and nonprofits that help veterans, military service members and their families, and local small businesses. She has helped support student success by raising money for scholarships at her alma mater, UNCG. Caroline has also played an instrumental role in helping to raise millions of dollars for a local non-profit organization that provides life-saving medical transportation for children to appointments and procedures worldwide.
Caroline's own world changed in 2021 with the birth of her first son. She and her husband and son love the beach, skiing, spending time with family and friends, and traveling to new and exciting places.
Outside work, Caroline enjoys a very active lifestyle. She loves to ride bikes, practice yoga, dance, and hike. She also loves cheering on her UNCG Spartans, the Carolina Panthers, Carolina Hurricanes, and the UNC Tar Heels.
Caroline considers her viewers to be her friends and loves to hear from them. She encourages everyone to follow her on social media. Her handle is @CarolineBNews on all social media platforms, including Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
