Carolyn Clifford Career
She was originally hired at WXYZ to anchor weekends and as the station’s health reporter. By May 2002, Detroit began waking up with Carolyn when she joined the “7 Action News This Morning” team. When Carolyn became the co-anchor of 7 Action News at 11 pm, she gave up her daily duties as Channel 7’s Health Reporter.
Carolyn spent 13 years informing Detroiters about the latest developments in medical science and the effects they have on our community. Carolyn was as well the host of the multiple Emmy-nominated half-hour health programs called “Healthy Living Sunday.”
She as well worked at the CBS affiliates in both Orlando, FL and Lansing, MI, but got her real start in news at a small radio station in Lansing.
In 2015, Carolyn was among a handful of journalists selected from across the country and the only news anchor in Michigan to be invited to the White House to interview President Obama about the Iran Nuclear Deal.

Carolyn has covered everything from hurricanes in North Carolina to former South African President Nelson Mandela’s first visit to Michigan after he was freed from prison.
