Carl Winder is a Photojournalist with KOAA News5 in Pueblo and Colorado Springs. He's covered news in Colorado Springs and Pueblo since 2013, first as a multimedia journalist at another station in town, before joining News5 as a Photojournalist to cover the community of Pueblo.
He's covered just about every news event in Pueblo and the surrounding cities and counties since 2017, including protests over the Christopher Columbus statue, severe weather and street flooding, the much-loved Chile and Frijole Festival, and wildfires.
Carl's news philosophy is everyone has a story to tell. He's been recognized by the Colorado Broadcaster's Association for his work on a documentary with the News5 Investigates team.
As he grew up in Las Vegas, Carl graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Broadcast Journalism from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, with a minor in history.
"I like visiting the small towns that do not get a lot of attention. I like hiking, especially 14ers. I like going to the farms and trying to fresh food and produce, especially chile peppers and cantaloupes," Carl explains when talking about why he's everywhere in the community.
