Summary

Carole Kerr began her journalism career in 1985 as a reporter/producer for the Golden West Network in Bunbury and later Kalgoorlie. In 1987 she moved to Channel 9 Perth as a reporter for the main evening news and producer of "Nightline" and the 11.30 morning news. She then joined the newly established Channel 10 Perth where she was a general reporter and weekend news producer.

In 1992 she returned to Channel 9 to join the reporting team on the news magazine programme "Perth Extra". Two years later, she became the station's documentary producer, heading a newly formed unit, which has produced award-winning programmes including the highly acclaimed "They Said Don't Worry - the Deborah Maybury Story". This documentary won many state and national awards, including the Walkley, and was a finalist in the Logie Awards.

Carole has worked in all forms of media at a national level.
