Kailey McCarthy

Kailey anchors our newest addition to the KALB lineup, First Look at 4:00, alongside Anna Denton.

She is a proud graduate of the University of Alabama. She graduated through the Honors College with degrees in both Broadcast Journalism and Political Science. As a student, Kailey spent three years working at WVUA 23 News, a local station covering the Tuscaloosa area. Upon graduation, Kailey spent two years working as a Multi-Media Journalist and Reporter at the FOX affiliate in Albany, Georgia. While reporting at FOX 31, Kailey covered the devastating aftermath of Hurricane Michael and met with Vice President Mike Pence while he toured Southwest Georgia following the hurricane.

Kailey also spent time interning at ABC 33/40 in Birmingham and NBC 15 in Mobile, Alabama.

When Kailey isn't anchoring, she enjoys spending time with family, friends and cuddling with her rescue pup, Luna. Kailey loves to try out new recipes, binge watch Netflix and, of course, cheer on the Crimson Tide.
