John Carroll was born in Long Beach, California. His affinity for the written and spoken word began as a young child. So it followed logically that he studied broadcast journalism at Pepperdine University, having fallen in love with the medium after a high school internship at WMAQ TV in Chicago. Over the years, John’s profession would take him to Reno, Los Angeles and eventually home to San Diego where he reported at Channel 10 for several years before becoming the weekend anchor/reporter at CW6.
John is thrilled to now be a part of KPBS Radio & TV where he is a member of San Diego’s premier broadcast/online news organization. He also lends his talent to the station’s fundraising efforts as part of KPBS’ on-air fundraising team.
