Pat-Carroll-cropYou’d have to get up pretty early in the morning to get a head start on Pat Carroll. As half of the WCBS Morning Anchor Team, Pat starts her day long before the sun is up so she can help tri-state residents get ready to start their day.

From how to dress the kids for the bus stop, to an early warning about a traffic problem; from late sports scores to the buzz about the late-night talk shows, listeners know they can count on Pat.

And whether it’s the transit stike, a nor’easter or 9/11, when big news breaks, they rely on her calm presence to guide them through it.

Pat is also the host of the daily Parents Magazine feature “Raising our Kids” on the CBS Radio Network.

And since the very first WCBS Working Women’s Luncheon in 2001, Pat has interviewed accomplished women from fields as diverse as publishing, finance, the media, sports and design.

She’s won numberous awards including the 2005 Edward R. Murrow award for Best Newscast, the 2003 New York State Associated Press award for Best Newscast Team, and the 2002 New York State Broadcasters’ Association award for Best On-air Team.
