General Assignments Reporter

Caroline Balchunas

Caroline joined the KLFY news team in September 2011 as a weekday reporter for the Eyewitness News.

During her time at KLFY, Caroline has investigated several stories which garnered national attention. In August 2013, she appeared on the E! Network's special about the murder of Lafayette woman, Mickey Shunick. In October 2013, she appeared on a Dr. Phil episode about a cold-case murder mystery.

Caroline placed as AP's 2012 "Reporter of the Year" category as well as "Continuing Coverage" for her series "Mickey Shunick: From Missing to Arrest."

A native to Pensacola Beach, Florida, Caroline left the Emerald Coast to study at Loyola University New Orleans in 2006, the year after Hurricane Katrina. Witnessing the city struggle after incredible devastation helped shaped Caroline's view of journalism and how important the media's role can be in people's lives.

After graduating from Loyola with a journalism degree, she got her start in broadcast as a news desk assistant at WWL-TV in New Orleans. Overtime, she became an associate producer of WWL's Eyewitness Morning News show with Sally Ann Roberts and Eric Paulsen.

When she's not out chasing the next story, Caroline loves to run, practice yoga, read, and explore what Louisiana has to offer. Got a great story idea? You can reach her at
