Connect with Ann Karrick:
Ann Karrick is an experienced talk show host, news anchor, and business woman. She combines her experience from television, radio, IBM, AT&T, Golf Digest, Olympic Games, and more, to shine a light on current events, news headlines, trending topics, and stories that are being overlooked. Twice, Karrick has been selected in a Best Local Radio Personality poll.
Business experience, competitive sports, immersion in foreign culture, and a genuine interest in unearthing more information have always meant better questions asked and more interesting interviews or reports for Karrick’s audiences.
Karrick has been working in the television and radio broadcasting industry since 1996, when she volunteered to report live from the Olympic Games in Atlanta for WWYZ in Hartford. A few years later, she reported live for WPKN in Bridgeport and WELI in New Haven from the French Quarter at Mardi Gras in New Orleans.
These assignments were followed by a regular news anchor/reporter position with the morning news team at a news/talk radio station in the greater New York City area. Karrick provided live coverage from breaking and lead stories, when not anchoring the news. At the same time Karrick began hosting episodes of Women In Business TV, in part producing her own shows. Based on her work at Women In Business TV, Karrick was asked to host episodes of Issues and Answers, a live television show out of New Haven.
Karrick was hired as the regular full-time co-host for the morning show at Q105 in New London, which included news responsibilities. She was live on the air the morning of September 11, 2001, and provided critical information to New London, Groton, Mystic, and the community surrounding the Naval Nuclear Submarine Base in Groton. During her time in New London, Karrick worked closely with both Mohegan Sun and Foxwoods® Resort & Casino. She did several appearances at both casinos and at the naval base.
Karrick’s next stop was back in the greater New York area at WFAS, WEBE and WICC, where she became a frequent news anchor on both the AM and FM stations, hosting news and entertainment talk shows, and even providing commuter traffic reports. Her work included morning show co-anchor and news, specialty news-block talk shows, election coverage, and of course on-the-scene coverage for breaking news and critical events.
During a five month assignment as the morning show news anchor on WEBE & WICC the stations achieved a combined share of 22.9 and WEBE was named "Radio Station of the Year," earning an R&R Industry Achievement Award.
While continuing her work at WFAS, WEBE and WICC, Karrick was named the host and producer of For The Record a national weekly network television talk show on ION Media Networks (formerly PAX-TV and Paxson). Karrick hosted and produced more than 150 television shows for ION, managing guests, topics, research, and legal filings for each show.
After leaving For The Record, Karrick continued to anchor news and host talk shows in the greater New York area. Karrick also was a co-host and the producer of This Week with Ann Karrick & Vincent Caprio, a live weekly radio talk show focusing on current events and business issues.
In addition to on-air positions, Karrick consults in the corporate programming office for Saga Communications, working with program directors across the country for Saga owned radio stations, providing data analysis comparison to help local program directors improve their on-air product and be more successful against local competition.
Karrick continues to do on-air work and data analysis work in broadcasting, as well as marketing, media and public relations consulting work.
