Former WSEE Anchor and Reporter Carol Pella Dies

Carol Pella, former reporter for Erie, PA, CBS affiliate WSEE has died.

Pella started her career at WSEE in 1974 and worked as both an anchor and a reporter. She was known for her fearless style of investigative journalism.

“She wasn’t afraid of anything,” said Pierre Bellicini, former WSEE news director. “She wasn’t afraid of politicians. She wasn’t afraid of gangsters who we had to cover for crime stories so I think she was, probably the best way to describe Carol is, a very tough reporter.” You can watch a retrospective on Pella by Scott Bremner after the jump.

“Carol and I were different reporters but I think she taught me the value of what is truth.” said Penn State professor and former colleague Kim Young. “And barge your way in. So I rarely take no for an answer because of Carol Pella.”

Pella was 62.
