Carol MacKenzie

For many Delaware Valley listeners, Carol MacKenzie's voice is the first they hear on weekday mornings. MacKenzie joined the KYW Newsradio staff as a morning anchor in 2003.

A native of Lancaster, PA, she has a BA degree in communications from the University of Delaware and an MA from the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism.

She has enjoyed a long career as a reporter and anchor in both radio and television. Carol began her journalism career as a reporter at WLAN Radio in Lancaster. She’s also anchored and reported for a number of television stations in the northeast -- including WETM-TV in Elmira, NY; WBRE-TV in Wilkes-Barre, PA; WMUR-TV in Manchester, NH; and New England Cable News in Boston. Her documentary, “Honduras: Mission of Hope” -- about a local group of volunteers who set up free medical and dental clinics -- won awards from the Pennsylvania Association of Broadcasters, the RTNDA, and Women in Communication. Although she has enjoyed getting to know the people in different towns and cities, Carol is glad to be back home in Pennsylvania.
