Casey Roman

Investigative Reporter

Wilmington, NC

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.

Casey brought the very first (and second) Edward R. Murrow award to WECT.

When she's not out shooting video, you can usually find Casey lifting embarrassingly light weights at the gym, running her baking business and cage fighting.

You can get in touch with her or find her on Facebook: ttps://
