Carli Petrus joined KTTC in April 2021. She was born and raised in a suburb outside of Cleveland, Ohio, where she attended Brunswick High School. Carli pursued a double major in college and received a bachelor of arts degree in Dance and in Communications at Mercyhurst University in Erie, Pennsylvania.
While in school, she interned at WKYC-TV in Cleveland for the news as well as production. Carli was also an intern at JET24/FOX66 in Erie, Pennsylvania for its sports department.
Carli grew up dancing, and even continued in college, but has always had a love for sports. She has played various sports throughout her life including golf, softball and basketball. Her knowledge and passion for sports allowed her to become the beat reporter for her college hockey team until she graduated.
She is beyond thrilled to begin her reporting journey here in Rochester, Minnesota. She is ready to make this city her new home and cannot wait to meet and learn about the community.
