Caroline Lowe

Veteran crime reporter Caroline Lowe joined the team in 2011, after leaving her 34-year career at WCCO-TV in the Twin Cities to become KSBY-TV’s Santa Barbara County, California, newsroom manager.

Lowe returned to her roots as a reporter in 2015 when she did two investigative series on missing persons and unidentified human remains for KSBY. As part of the investigation, Lowe created the most comprehensive database of missing persons on the California Central Coast.

In 2015, she also began working special assignment for KARE 11-TV in Minnesota on the Jacob Wetterling abduction case.

Lowe has an extensive background covering cold cases. She has filed numerous reports regarding the disappearance of Jodi Huisentruit and the abduction of Jacob Wetterling. While at WCCO, her I-Team reports garnered national attention. Her work has appeared on 20/20, Oprah, Court TV and Forensic Files.

Lowe’s decision to join came from her dedication to missing persons and cold cases, along with her persistence in never giving up finding the truth.

Lowe graduated with a B.S. in Law Enforcement from Metropolitan State University and earned a Master’s Degree in Police Leadership from the University of St. Thomas.

In addition to being a reporter, Lowe has private investigator license in California. She spent two weeks for eight summers as a patrol officer at the Minnesota State Fair and graduated in 2010 from the FBI Citizen’s Academy in Minneapolis.

Lowe recently became a Petaluma Police Department volunteer where she plans to focus on crime prevention education.

Lowe is a 2013 graduate of the Poynter Institute’s Leadership Academy.

Lowe is an award-winning journalist. She’s received the Alfred I. DuPont Columbia Award, two Regional Emmy awards, a Sweepstake Award from the Society of Professional Journalists, two Associated Press awards and a UPI award. Her investigation on Tony Jackson, a convicted rapist, earned her a Minnesota Associated Press Broadcasters Award for Best Documentary/Investigative work.

In 1986, Lowe was awarded the Minnesota Association of Crime Victims Media Attention Service Award, the first time that award was given to a member of the media.

She is a member of the Investigative and Reporters and Editors (IRE) organization and an associate member of the California Association of Licensed Investigators (CALI).
