Makenzi Henderson joins WWAY as new ‘Good Morning Carolina’ anchor

Tuesday, April 23rd, 2013

I’m excited to introduce you to Makenzi Henderson, our new “Good Morning Carolina” anchor.

She comes to Wilmington from a news organization based in Davenport, IA. Ironically, she replaced Cacky when she moved to Wilmington a couple of years ago.

Makenzi will anchor with Chris Phillips tonight at 5 & 6 p.m. to get her feet wet, then join Randy Aldridge and Meteorologist Tim Buckley on “GMC” later this week.

Here’s more about Makenzi:

Makenzi Henderson joined WWAY as morning anchor and reporter in April 2013. She comes to Wilmington with nearly six years of experience in broadcasting.

Makenzi has always lived in cold weather climates, so no snow at Christmas will be something very strange to her, but she won’t miss the bitter cold!

Makenzi began her career as a one-woman-band bureau reporter for KOTA-TV in Spearfish, SD. After a year of driving her own car, plus shooting, writing and editing her own stories, she moved to work at the main station in Rapid City, SD. That’s when she added weekend anchor and producer to her reporting duties, and earned an Associated Press Award for her story on Greenpeace protesters who climbed Mount Rushmore.

Two years after that, she moved to Duluth, MN, to work for FOX 21 News as the main 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. anchor and producer. A year later, she moved to Davenport, IA, to work for INN. The company outsources news to TV stations across the country. Makenzi produced and anchored up to five newscasts a day with local content from reporters at those stations.

When Makenzi isn’t at work, she loves to hike, ski, read, workout, paint and hang with her dog Stella.
