Isiah Carey | FOX 26 Reporter

Isiah Carey is a General Assignment Reporter for FOX 26 News at 9. Originally from Baton Rouge, La., he caught the TV bug at a very young age. In fact, he made his debut in front of the camera at the age of five, on a weekly local segment called Thought for the Day on WVLA-TV.

But it wasn't until 1978 when, as a third-grade student, Isiah realized that he wanted to be a reporter on TV. That's when a local television journalist spoke to his class, and inspired Isiah to contact a Baton Rouge TV station, asking for a summer job. He got the job and worked at that station every summer, for no credit, until he went away to college.

In college, Isiah continued his pursuit of a broadcasting career. Before graduating from Southern University in Baton Rouge, he was already a news anchor and a reporter for the city's WXOK-AM radio.

By 1990, Isiah was the News Director and anchor at KQXL-AM and WYCT-FM, where he managed a small news staff. That same year, Isiah got his first real TV job as a reporter and Public Affairs talk show host at WVLA. In 1991, he re-joined WAFB-TV, the same station he shadowed as a third grader. He remained there for four years. He joined KRIV-TV in September, 2001.

Throughout his broadcasting career, Isiah has won several awards, including an Emmy and an award from the Society of Professional Journalists.
