Washington Correspondent Carol Han joined 6 News in April 2006 after working as a reporter/anchor at WHP-TV Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Prior to that, Carol braced the frigid winds of Fargo, North Dakota, where she began her career at KVLY-TV.
While in Pennsylvania, Carol uncovered and broke a number of stories, including a cheating scandal at the local police academy.

The story helped win Carol a regional Emmy Award for individual achievement in 2005. This 2-time Emmy-nominated reporter has also won several awards from the Associated Press and the Northwest Broadcast News Association. In 2002, she took home the Eric Severaid Award for outstanding feature story.
Carol graduated magna cum laude from Columbia University with a B.A. in English literature. She also earned a master’s degree in journalism from Northwestern University.
Carol grew up on the East Coast and Europe, living in Norway, Belgium and France. A self-described nomad, Carol enjoys traveling and reading in her free time. She also dreams of someday running a marathon.
