Danielle McCarthy joined KWQC-TV6 News as a video journalist in June, 2013. Since then, she has covered a large variety of stories ranging from breaking news and crime, to politics and feature stories.
Danielle began her broadcasting career at KOMU-TV in Columbia, Mo. She spent two years at the Mid-Missouri NBC affiliate where she anchored, reported and produced newscasts. During that time she also worked as a radio personality and board operator for Mid-Missouri's number one hit music station, KTXY-FM.
While working at KOMU-TV, Danielle earned degrees in economics and radio-television journalism from the University of Missouri. She is originally from the western suburbs of Chicago and is happy to call the Quad Cities her new home.
When Danielle's not at work, she likes to get creative - trying out recipes and crafts she finds on Pinterest.
