John Carroll

General Assignment Reporter & Anchor

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 in his role as a general assignment reporter and Saturday morning radio news anchor. He loves coming up with story ideas that aren't being covered elsewhere, but he’s also ready to cover the breaking news of the day. In addition, he delivers the local news headlines on Saturday mornings during NPR's Weekend Edition. He also lends his talent to the station’s fundraising efforts as part of KPBS’ on-air fundraising team.
