Pre-Apocalypse Edit

Prior to the apocalypse Carly worked as a weather girl at the Action 9 News station.  She was liked by everyone. She finally got the chance to co-anchor the news together with Jack Kingman on the day the apocalypse hit. Watching as their field reporters take on the story of a plane chrash she witnesses how one reporter is bit, as Kingman is taken off guard Carly calmly continues to report the news in order to give the viewers the information they need.

Post Apocalypse Edit

Carly was in the station building when the apocalypse began. When the station's envoy returned to report, it turned out that he was bitten. Soon after this he turns and starts biting other staff members. Carly and Doug flee to the toilets where Doug is bitten, and barricaded in the toilets by Carly. Carly then heads to the roof where she waits for a helicopter arriving there, which did not reach her. Eight years later, Warren and the rest of the group arrive at the station to contact Kaya concerned about her broadcast. Upon reaching the roof, they show Carly mercy eight years after the beginning of the apocalypse.
