Follow Carina on Facebook

Carina Corral joined the KSBY News team in July 2004 as the Santa Maria Bureau Chief covering big stories such as the Michael Jackson child molestation trial and the James Noriega capital murder trial.

She anchored the weekend editions of KSBY News before being promoted to co-anchor of the #1 morning show on the Central Coast, KSBY News Daybreak from 5-7am.

While co-anchoring Daybreak, Carina has kept viewers informed during major breaking news events such as the devastating Tea Fire in Montecito. For that five-hour, wall-to-wall coverage, she was honored by the Associated Press in 2008 with a Mark Twain Award for Best Live Coverage of a Breaking News Event.

As KSBY's health reporter, she was honored by the Radio Television News Association with a 2010 Golden Mike Award for Best Hard News Series for stories she reported on involving children who are overcoming life-threatening diseases.

Carina is a native Californian. She grew up in San Diego and graduated from San Diego State University with a degree in Journalism. She even worked at the NBC affiliate, KNSD as a writer for the weekday and weekend morning newscasts during her college career.

Carina started her broadcast career in Eureka, California at KIEM-TV. There she worked as weekend anchor where she produced, wrote and edited the newscasts. She did it all, including shooting and editing her own stories.

Carina loves to call the Central Coast, or as she puts it, "this little slice of heaven" home. A BIG fan of Dodger baseball, she is often seen cheering on team Blue with her husband, son and trusty dogs, Duke and Roxy.
