Carol Costello was born on 11 October 1961 as a daughter of Sherlyn Costello (mother) and David Costello (father). Her star sign is Libra. Carol, the second child of four siblings, was born in Minerva, Ohio, USA, and is of American descent, but her ethnicity is white. Carol’s family was closely connected and they stayed together for a long time.
From Minerva High School, where she graduated from high school, she moved to Kent State University, where she earned a degree in Journalism. After graduating, she began a career in journalism. She began her career at WAKR-TV in Akron, Ohio, where she received an award as a police and court reporter. This award opened the doors for her to other awards such as the Emmy Award, which she received as a presenter/reporter for WSYX, the ABC subsidiary, and WBNS 10-TV, the CBS subsidiary in Columbus, Ohio. She gained further recognition through her work with other broadcasters, but her biggest victory came when she got a job at CNN.
She initially worked as a presenter at CNN Headline News, but after her marriage in 2004, she had to move to the New York branch of CNN. In New York, she joined the CNN team that covered the unveiling of the space shuttle, the Asian tsunami disaster in December 2004, the Virginia Tech filming, the hostage-taking at a Russian school, the midterm elections in Ohio and Hurricanes Charley, Ivan, Frances, and Jeanne.
In the long run, Carol has earned a reputation as an enterprising reporter, which is why interviews with four presidents have been a credit to her. She interviewed Ronald Reagan, Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, and George H.W. Bush. It’s also possible that she was involved in covering their inauguration. On weekdays, she hosted the lunchtime edition of CNN Newsroom and other programs such as CNN Daybreak, The Situation Room, and American Morning.

She received an Emmy Award in 1991 for her reporting on crack cocaine and cocaine and several other press-related awards, including a UPI Award. Her excellent morning program earned her the Daytime Emmy Award.
Eventually, she moved with her husband to Baltimore, Maryland, and consequently, it was announced on January 30, 2017, that she would leave CNN to return to HLN to present a new program. On her last day at CNN, Carol could not hold back tears as Jeff Zucker, in his tribute to her efforts and contributions, described her as wholehearted and full of grace and the epitome of an experienced journalist, and he also described her as the perfect cast for HLN’s powerful reporter’s bench.
For her part, Carol described how difficult it was to leave the CNN family. According to the beautiful reporter, it was like cutting off her left arm, but for personal reasons, she had to take this step. She also turned to her viewers, thanking them for their time and for making her job so much easier. She said that she would miss her viewers, but she had to join her husband who got a fantastic job at the LMU in Los Angeles.
