Carey Wickersham


If you feel a slight sense of deja-vu when you turn on FOX 4 during the weekend morning show, don't medicate.

Carey Wickersham is back. She worked from 1999 until 2002 as a reporter for Fox and then took what she calls a 9 year "baby break".

Carey started back as a weekend morning reporter during the summer of 2011. She began her career as a reporter and anchor in Rapid City, South Dakota. On her journey home to Kansas City, Carey also worked as an anchor and reporter at stations in Arizona and Idaho.

Carey loves to spend time with family, teach water fitness, ride bikes, read and tell stories that make a difference, especially if they involve children.

Carey is a Kansas City native. Her father Dave Wickersham was a major league baseball player. He pitched for the Kansas City Royals in 1969.

Along with her weekend reporting duties, Carey is writing a book called The Living Womb. Visit her website at to see sonograms of babies in the metro.
