Caroline Ritter Bio
Caroline Ritter joined the WTVY News Team in March 2016 as the Weekend Meteorologist/Weekday Reporter.
Caroline is from Birmingham, AL and her passion for weather peaked after the 2011 Tuscaloosa tornado where her two brothers were currently in school at the University of Alabama. From that point on, Caroline became obsessed with tracking storms and the science of meteorology. She is fascinated with sunsets, hurricanes, and clouds. You can frequently catch her looking out the window or outside taking pictures of the sky. When Caroline was a little girl, she dreamed of becoming a broadcaster. She decided to combine her love of TV with her love of science and math in hopes of turning her dream into a reality. She interned this past summer at WBRC Fox 6 News and has job shadowed at WCBI in Columbus, Mississippi, WCSC in Charleston, South Carolina, WVUA in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, WVTM and ABC 33/40 in Birmingham, Alabama.
In May 2016, Caroline graduated from Mississippi State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Geosciences with an emphasis in Broadcast Meteorology. During her time at Mississippi State, she has been an active member of the Northeast Mississippi Chapter of the National Weather Association/American Meteorological Society and has served as a Committee Head for the annual Southeast Severe Storms Symposium. She is also currently participating in the Weather Challenge with the forecasting team from Mississippi State.
Caroline loves her family, friends, traveling and even playing violin on the side. She will gladly accept being called a “weather nerd” and hopes to communicate well with her viewers through social media and through her forecasts. She is thrilled to be returning back to Sweet Home Alabama and hopes to bring a little sunshine to any viewer’s day.
