In December 2012, he reported on the deadly Clackamas Town Center shooting.

He also spent almost 5 years as a reporter and weekend producer in Fresno, California.

McCarron reported near the frontlines of many devastating wildfires and the economic impacts caused by the region’s crippling drought. One of McCarron’s most memorable moments was meeting a three-year-old girl whose family benefited from a unique program that gives free, non-emergency air travel for adults and children with serious medical conditions. A few weeks after his story aired, the girl passed away. The girl’s family decided to play his story at her memorial service because it captured some of the girl’s final days.
