Casey Roman is WECT's Special Projects reporter and a "coach" to our newest members of the news team. Returning to Wilmington was Casey's 20th move and she has promised to call the Port City home for good. Casey is originally from New Jersey and maintains that "barbeque" is a device and not a food group. She has been with Raycom Media since college – starting as an intern at WMC in Memphis, TN before reporting at WECT, then America Now in Charlotte, NC and finally, back in Wilmington.

You can get in touch with her firstname.lastname@example.org or find her on Facebook: ttps://www.facebook.com/casey.roman.9
