Karlynn Wells joined the WDVM team in April 2017. She is a graduate of Rutgers University where she studied Journalism and Political Science and graduated magna cum laude. While there she reported for WRSU covering political and environmental topics. Karlynn has previously worked at WABC in New York, NY where she helped produce segments for their 7 On Your Side consumer helpline. She has also worked at CNN where she helped develop political segments for HLN. Karlynn is a proud member of the National Association of Black Journalist and the Kappa Alpha Tau honor society which recognizes excellence in journalism and communication.
Karlynn’s love for journalism comes from her strong desire to get to know people that come from all walks of life. She is most excited to tell those stories that might not have been told otherwise. When Karlynn isn’t chasing a story she enjoys spending time with her family, traveling, and going to concerts.
Karlynn is excited to report for WDVM covering the Northern Virginia area and looks forward to getting to know WDVM’s viewers. Feel free to email her with story ideas and connect with her on social media!
