Carol began her career at the “Voice of St. Louis” in 1995 as an anchor, reporter and talk show host. She was hired when the program director at the time was driving to Memphis, and heard Carol on the air at a radio station in Cape Girardeau, Mo. Two weeks later, she moved to St. Louis and was working at KMOX.

While she began her radio career in college, Carol brings a wealth of experience to KMOX. She was once a campaign organizer, a recruiter for the U.S. Census Bureau, and even worked as a substitute teacher. Carol is a gifted motivational speaker who believes in the biblical verse, “To whom much is given, much is required.”

Carol helped launch the Emmy-winning television talk show, “Great Day St. Louis,” where she was a cohost for four years. She is also an award-winning columnist — she was honored twice with a National Newspaper Association award for her column, “Carol’s Journal,” which ran for nearly 10 years in the St. Louis American Newspaper. In 2014, Carol published her first book, “All I Ever Wanted: Relationships, Marriage, Family.” A children’s book is in the works.

Carol has been honored for her work by the Missouri Broadcasters Association, St. Louis Association of Black Journalists, Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, the Monsanto YWCA, and she is a member of the YWCA Women’s Leader Class of 2005. Carol has also received the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. State Celebration Commission’s Distinguished Local Media award.

Carol is a military brat, raised in Fort Leonard Wood, Mo., where her father retired after 27 years in the U.S. Army. She is a member of New Life in Christ Interdenominational Church in O’Fallon, Ill., where she and her husband launched the couple’s ministry, “Journey to Oneness” or “J2O.”
