Isabella Caruso joined the News 18 team in August of 2017
Isabella Caruso joined the News 18 team in August of 2017 from Lombard, Illinois- but she’s no stranger to the Hoosier state. Growing up, she spent the summers at her grandfather’s home on Lake Shafer in Monticello and was a frequent camper at Camp Tecumseh.
Isabella received her Bachelors of Art in Broadcast Journalism from The Meek School of Journalism and New Media at The University of Mississippi and is currently pursuing her Broadcast Meteorology Certification online through Mississippi State University.
During undergrad, Isabella was a news reporter for the Ole Miss student-run TV station NewsWatch, and also worked as a reporter and copy editor for the university’s student-run newspaper, The Daily Mississippian.
Isabella was the morning news intern for WGN Chicago- Chicago’s #1 Morning News. At WGN, Isabella worked closely with Emmy Award Winning Anchor Larry Potash to investigate the John Wayne Gacy case. Isabella also interned at two radio stations, WOXF and WDCB.
Outside of work Isabella enjoys reading, spending time outside and going for long runs.
Although she cheers for the SEC, Isabella is excited to live and report in a Big Ten town. Please feel free to reach out to her with story ideas!
