Alma joined News 12 team at the tail end of 2014. She graduated from the University of Georgia’s Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication in December 2014 with a Digital and Broadcast Journalism major and minors in History and Spanish.

She’s originally from Detroit but has lived in the South for eight years. In fifth grade, she read the morning announcements, which felt like a very big deal at the time. A lot has changed since then.

Although she wasn’t sure exactly what she wanted to pursue in college right away, she quickly learned broadcast journalism would be the best career path, incorporating her love of news, writing and video editing in an exciting atmosphere. She also knew the news business was for her after she interned at WSOC-TV Channel 9 in Charlotte, N.C., in the summer of 2013.

During her time at UGA, she worked in all aspects of broadcast news through the student-run station Grady Newsource, which broadcasts in Athens, Ga.,and surrounding counties. She first worked behind the scenes, operating cameras and the audio board, and later in front of the camera as a reporter and anchor. On an unrelated note, she also drove a bus for Campus Transit during her time as a student, and visited Valencia, Spain, on a study abroad trip.

Contact her anytime with stories! You can reach her on Facebook or Twitter or e-mail at alma.mccarty@wrdw.com. She would love to hear from you.
