Caroline Peterson joined the NBC15 news team in June 2018 as a multi-media journalist/reporter. Originally from Southern California, Caroline is excited to be in Madison. Many of her family members live on the Wisconsin-Minnesota border, and she lived there for a few years while growing up.

Before coming to NBC15, Caroline worked as a reporter, anchor and producer at KOMU, the NBC-affiliate in Columbia, Missouri. She held internships for Fox Sports San Diego and NBC7 in San Diego. Caroline graduated from the University of Missouri’s School of Journalism in 2018 and is a proud tiger (MIZ!).

When Caroline is not working, she loves listening to music, trying out new places to eat, being outdoors and exploring. While she is a coastal girl at heart, she already loves the lake life and is looking forward to paddle boarding on Lake Mendota.

Caroline is ecstatic to be in Wisconsin’s Capital City, and can’t wait to learn more about the area and become a part of the community.
