Carina met Steve at KSBY. At that time Steve was her in-studio camera guy while she was weekend anchor.  The pair  fell in love, got married and had two beautiful boys, Stone and Steel. Their Kids personalities match their names almost too well. Both are big, strong boys. They definitely get their stature from their father Steve. Steel is confident, smart, funny, charismatic and very inquisitive. Stone is definitely their rough and tumble boy, but he’s also so lovable. He loves to wrestle with his big brother Steel, snuggle and give hugs and kisses, laugh his head off and also scream at the top of his lungs (terrible twos!).

During her off time, Carina spends a lot of quality time with her family from exploring the outdoors to rooting on their favorite sports teams the Dodgers and the Raiders!

Carina Corral Interview

This isn’t your first rodeo in the news business. How and where did you get your start as a journalist? did you always know this was the career for you?

I decided half way through college that I wanted to be a broadcaster and as I pursued a journalism degree, all the right doors started opening. To me, that was a sign that I was on the right path. I interned, and was eventually hired as a writer, at the NBC station in San Diego. Once I graduated in 2002, I got my first on-air job at one of the smallest stations in the country at KIEM in Eurkea, Ca. It’s one of those stations where you wear all hats. I was hired as the weekend anchor, but in reality I was the weekend anchor/producer/writer/editor/reporter/photographer. I was making a little more than minimum wage, working holidays, reporting in the pouring rain, and, yes, living my dream. Even then, I knew there was nothing else I wanted to do.

What first brought you to the central coast and what was your first impression of the area? is there anything you wish you could tell your younger self when you first moved here?

A couple years after starting at KIEM, I landed a job at KSBY as the Santa Maria reporter in 2002. My plan was to be here for two years and head off to a bigger market, but as we all know this little slice of paradise is a hard place to leave. Back then, the Central Coast reminded me of a little San Diego: so beautiful, just on a smaller scale. I instantly fell in love.

What would I would tell my younger self? GO TO THE BEACH MORE, relax, and enjoy the day .. because when you go to the beach with your family it’s just a different kind of beach day! We went to Moonstone Beach when we first moved back. As I was lying on the beach, I closed my eyes for just a second and started thinking about those care-free days .. when no less than thirty seconds later I was snapped back to reality with a fistful of pebbles thrown at me by my then one-year-old. I had to laugh at the irony.

Take us through a rough outline of your day. What are your favorite and least favorite aspects of your routine?

Every morning starts with getting my seven-year-old ready for school. I take him to school and then a few times a week I take my two-year-old to the gym, drop him off at kids care while I work out. The rest of the morning is spent running errands, doing house chores, or, if I find the time, tinkering with some restoration projects until I start getting ready for work. Then, it’s off to work and off to the races with attending meetings, reviewing scripts, setting up stories, shooting promos, working on stories, etc. Being able to get in a little “me time” – like working out – and spending one-one-one time with my youngest are definitely the best parts of my routine. Getting up so early when I go to bed so late is definitely my least favorite.

As an anchor, you juggle family life with a work schedule that is a bit “outside of the box.” What are the perks and disadvantages of this? what advice do you have for other parents in similar shoes?

Since I go in to work in the afternoon, I love that I have the whole morning with my little one; at the same time, I don’t see my oldest (and my husband, for that matter) nearly as much as I would like to. So that’s definitely been an adjustment. Weekends are invaluable to us. I’m constantly seeking advice from other parents on this shift, so I don’t think I can offer any as I’m still figuring it all out. Really, what I’ve found is you have to do what works for you and your family. And right now, this is what works for us.

What has been your proudest moment as a journalist?

I did a series of reports here at KSBY on kids battling and overcoming life-threatening illnesses. That’s what I’ve always loved about this job is being able to tell someone’s story and, in some cases, rallying support for them. As a journalist, they’re also the hardest stories to tell because you want to get it right for the person who’s trusted you to share their most personal moments. So when a panel of my peers awarded me a Golden Mic award for that series it was a proud moment, indeed. It was also such a rewarding feeling when some of the kids whom I reported on were equally as happy for me that I won the award.

I have to say, while I was working at a station in Fresno I had an idea to get the city fire chief and mayor and the county sheriff and district attorney together at one table: all women, all moms, all top positions, all at one table. It was the first time they had all been in one room together. It was fascinating to talk to these power women about their jobs, but most importantly about their families and how they balance it all. That, too, was a proud moment to share their stories of struggles and triumphs as each rose through the ranks.

What About Your Proudest Moment As A Mom?

I’d say one of the proudest moments as a mom happened just recently when my oldest son, Steel, decided he was going to spend some of his money he’d been saving to buy Christmas presents for less fortunate kids. When he bought them he said, “This feels good. I’m so glad I decided to do this.” He donated them to KSBY’s Season of Hope. But it didn’t end there. Later that week in class, the students were asked to write a letter to Santa about what they wanted for Christmas. Steel told me that he asked Santa to make sure “all the poor kids out there get presents to open.” It still brings a tear to my eye.

You often have sad news to report. Do you share the details of your work with your kids? how do you hope they will view the world?

I generally don’t offer up information on news stories, unless there’s a teaching moment to share with him. But there are times Steel sees the news and he’s very inquisitive. I remember one time he asked me about a bombing that happened in another country. I tried to explain to him that we are a lot safer here in America than the people in those other countries and to feel blessed we live in America and pray for those suffering in other countries.

Who’s inspiring you right now and what keeps you excited and motivated each day? 

My fellow moms out there who are raising kids, working, staying at home, trying to have a life, stumbling, getting right back up, keeping it real inspire me! There’s a lot of motivation hearing from other moms whether on social media, websites like this, talking with friends or random moms at the grocery store about great things happening with their kids and even some of the “challenges.” Sometimes we can feel like our children are the only ones acting out, talking back, making you late everywhere you go that it’s nice to know you’re not alone.

Tell us one thing most viewers don’t know about you.

I’m embarking on a fitness journey this year in 2017, which I hope to inspire moms out there. Stay tuned …
