Casey Allbee joined the KWQC-TV6 News team in May of 2018.
Casey grew up in Muscatine, Iowa and graduated from Muscatine Community College before attending the University of Northern Iowa in 2015. She originally wanted to be an elementary school teacher, but decided to pursue journalism after writing for The Calumet at MCC. Once she started at UNI, she became involved with the Northern Iowan and volunteered for ESPN3 while pursuing a B.A. in Electronic Media with a minor in Journalism.
In the summer of 2016, she became a “Quintern” for KWWL in Waterloo, Iowa. She worked closely with producers and three months later, she became a part-time producer for the station. Casey was responsible for producing the weekend morning show, Today in Iowa, and the KWWL News at Noon two days during the week. She gained a lot of experience in the newsroom before graduating from UNI in the spring of 2018 and is very grateful for the opportunities that the station gave her.
Outside of the newsroom, Casey enjoys spending time with her family.
She loves going on walks, baking and trying new recipes, shopping, and is a huge fan of the Netflix hit Stranger Things.
Casey is very happy and excited to be back in the QCA and if you have a story you would like to share, feel free to let her know!
