Cara Thomas joined YNN as the reporter for our North Country Newsroom in Potsdam and is now based in our Mohawk Valley Newsroom, covering the Utica, Rome and Herkimer County region.
Cara is originally from the Rochester area and began her news career with YNN Rochester as a photographer. Cara graduated from Messiah College with a double major in Broadcast Journalism and Theatre. During Cara's senior year of college, she spent the summer interning at YNN. She learned a lot of great lessons about news and life during her experience. Working alongside such a talented crew encouraged Cara to pursue reporting.
Cara loves to report on positive stories happening in the Valley and strives to look for a positive outlook in any situation. Outside of work, Cara loves to go to the theatre, read a good romance novel, and play board games with friends.
