The story of Carole's journey can give many professionals hope for when the best laid plans fall apart.
Carole Caine was born and raised in Beloit, Wisconsin. The daughter of a pharmacist and a housewife. She was the second of four children in a very close knit family. She learned very early on the importance of hard work in order to succeed in life. Her father ran a small family pharmacy and Carole and all her siblings worked then when the time came. Carole went to UW-Madison after graduating high school with the intentions of becoming a veterinarian but the world had different plans and Carole ended up transferring to UW-Whitewater where a first time professor recognized her talents and talked her into working at WSUW the campus radio station. She was also chosen to work as the campus cable stations news anchor. Carole quickly took to the airwaves and that's how a life in the media took shape.
Carole's first radio job came shortly after graduating college at WFAW/WSJY in Fort Atkinson, Wisconsin. She quickly learned that if she was going to make radio her calling she was going to have to learn all aspects of the business. She worked for both stations but it was the multiple roles she held at WFAW that truly set her skills for the job she would hold for 30 years. Working at WFAW helped Carole hoan her interpersonal abilities and definitely taught her the importance of being able to think on her feet. Her quick wit helped make her a success to her audience and with the radio remotes she was entrusted with at the county fairs. It was also the first time that Carole was introduced to interviewing major celebrities and politicians including people on the street. Her ability to make people feel special is her most important talent. Carole worked in Fort Atkinson for three years before moving to Milwaukee to work as a traffic/news reporter for WBCS radio. After a short stint there she was called over to work at WMGF radio as the news woman to the current morning show team there. Carole became a co-host of the show after the stations switched formats and changed it's call letters to WKLH. The co host position opened up when one half of the team decided to leave and pursue other interests. That is where Carole spent the next 30 years. During that time she has traveled the world for broadcasts, met and interview countless celebrities and sports figures including dealing with a large very loyal audience. Carole's self deprecating way endeared her to her audience and they delighted in the stories that she would tell about here life and her family.
Her charity work was also a large part of what she did for the station. She and her family were the Ambassador Family for the March of Dimes after the premature birth of her son. She has also been involved with the Wisconsin Humane Society rescuing many animals along the way. It is the work that she did for Children's Hospital of Wisconsin for which she is best known. During her years at WKLH she helped raise almost 20 million dollars for the facility. The caring way she related to the families made her popular with the hospital staff.
Carole's career with the station ended in 2015.
Carole currently works for WVTV Super 18 The CW in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. She is the new host of the station and is responsible for all the voice work and on camera work. She is extremely adaptable and can work calmly under pressure and is not fazed by the unpredictable or last minute changes.
