Carlen Dickerson

Carlen Dickerson realized her passion for performing at the young age of three when she began dancing. She quickly learned to dance, sing, act and basically make a fool out of herself for an audience’s enjoyment. Dickerson is thrilled to spend another year working on UMTV. She started her UMTV career anchoring SportsDesk and NewsBreak in her freshman year and has gone on to become the executive producer of NewsBreak in her sophomore year. She’s really excited to bring some changes to the show this year!
