In July 2015 she made her way off weekends and on to the anchor desk full time co-anchoring the Late Edition with Mike Ross Monday through Fridays while also turning daily reports.
Caslon comes to Alaska from Des Moines, Iowa where she was born and raised. After studying Political Science at Iowa State University, she transferred to Columbia College in Chicago to pursue a degree in Broadcast Journalism.
During her time at Channel Two Caslon has won numerous awards for her political and feature reporting. She has covered a range of topics including the historical reintroduction of wood bison in Alaska in Shageluk, to the devastating fatal landslides in Sitka, President Obama’s visit to rural Alaska when he traveled to Dillingham and most recently traveling to Washington D.C. to cover the Capitol Christmas tree from the Chugach National Forest.
In her free time, you can find Caslon running and biking on one of Anchorage’s many trails or discovering new venues to eat around town.
Caslon says she is proud to call Alaska home and looks forward to learning more about all the rich traditions and great history the 49th state claims. She is incredibly proud to be a part of the team at Channel 2 and looks forward to telling Alaska's story one report at a time. So, if you have any story ideas for Caslon, please send them her way!
