I'm Carlie McGuire, and I'm a journalist. It's a title that carries a lot of weight these days, and I'm honored to be a part of a profession with such responsibility.
The industry is nothing like I thought it'd be when I decided to go to the Missouri School of Journalism in 2009. But what I've seen, the stories I've told, and the people I've met, have made it a worthwhile journey.
From the University of Missouri, my first job took me 1,600 miles away from home to Cheyenne, Wyoming. I was a weekend anchor/reporter for KGWN, the CBS affiliate. From 2013 to 2015 I covered the everything from state legislative session, to the time a moose was on the Capitol lawn.
After two years in the wild west, I moved back east, to Savannah, Georgia.
Since June 2015, I've been a weekday MMJ at WJCL 22 News, Savannah's ABC affiliate. My main focus is city and county issues, but I was holding on to my hat during Hurricane Matthew (again a year later for TS Irma), and have been sent to Atlanta to cover the 2016 presidential campaign.
I know the industry is changing, and I'm here to learn new ways to tell stories, whether it be on TV, or on Facebook, Twitter, or wherever people are looking for their news.
