Karen Spears Zacharias grew up in a military family. Her father was killed in action in 1966. That early experience led Karen into a career as a journalist. She studied at Berry College, Oregon State University and Eastern Oregon University. 

Karen has worked at newspapers around the country. Her commentary has been featured in the New York Times, Washington Post, Newsweek, CNN, National Public Radio and The Huffington Post.

She has served on the advisory boards for the Vietnam Women’s Memorial Fund and the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall Education Center. She is a member of Sons & Daughters in Touch and Daughters of the American Revolution.

Crime writer Ann Rule urged Karen to write the story of KARLY SHEEHAN: The True Crime story behind Karly’s Law. The publication of KARLY SHEEHAN propelled Karen into speaking on behalf of abused children and advocating for a change of family court laws. Karen’s husband Tim is a CASA volunteer.,

In 2013, Karen published her first novel to broad-acclaim. MOTHER OF RAIN is the first in a series of books set in the Appalachian community of Christian Bend, Tennessee. MOTHER OF RAIN (Mercer University Press) was longlisted for the Crook’s Corner Book Award and received the Weatherford Award for Best in Appalachian Fiction by Berea College. MOTHER OF RAIN was later adapted for the stage by Paul Pierce of Georgia’s Historic Springer Theater. BURDY (Mercer University Press) was published in 2015 and CHRISTIAN BEND in Sept. 2017.

A lecturer at Central Washington University, Karen enjoys conducting workshops. She has spoken at the Library of Congress, at the National Mall in DC, and at various universities and colleges. Karen has appeared on Good Morning America and twice on The Diane Rehm Show. (She’s hoping for an invitation from 1A).

WJHL’s newest addition is the charming Victoria Cavaliere.  She has become a popular and essential member of the station’s storm team.  She grew up in the Township of Washington, New Jersey and developed an interest in weather. After graduating from Cornell University with a major in Atmospheric Science and a minor in Communications, the bright and talented Victoria eventually joined WJHL and earned a place in the community as a respected and much admired broadcaster. She was kind enough to show her support for our local library and, as an avid reader, she shared her fondness for Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier, The Glass Menagerie by Tennessee Williams, and The Portrait of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde. We appreciate Victoria’s support for library use and reading, and like all local viewers, we rely on her capable weather forecasting skills!
