Caileigh currently works as a morning and noon reporter for KRCG 13 Live at Sunrise and KRCG 13 Live at Noon.

Caileigh studied both sports and news broadcast journalism while attending Mizzou. She has a passion for telling stories about how news and sports affects peoples’ lives beyond the headline. Because she thrives on a deadline, Caileigh also enjoys covering breaking news.

While attending the Missouri School of Journalism, Caileigh interned at KGUN9 in Tucson, Arizona in their sports department where she covered the Arizona Diamondbacks, a competitive hot dog eater, BMX riders, etc. She also worked as a sports/news reporter and anchor at KOMU-TV during her junior and senior years at Mizzou.

Caileigh is excited to be back in her college town of Columbia because she is an avid Mizzou Tiger fan.
