Carly Hildyard joined the FOX8 team in January 2017 working the camera and reporting as a multimedia journalist. Before moving back to North Carolina, she worked as the morning news anchor in Panama City Beach, Florida, for nearly three years. Carly has covered topics including local politics, spring break on the Gulf Coast, the 2016 election cycle, a Black Hawk helicopter crash, the area’s military bases, education and health feature stories.
She’s thrilled to call the Piedmont her home again, after graduating with a degree in broadcast journalism from Elon University.
Outside of work, you can find Carly spending time with her dog, a Wheaten terrier/Poodle rescue named Captain. She enjoys working with kids and animals and exploring the beauty and nature of the Tar Heel State.
