Caleb Perhne

I have been interested in local television news since at least the age of three. I've been reporting for the Stampede since January 2015, and I've served as producer of our TV newscasts since fall 2015. I work at WCYB-TV in Bristol, VA over school breaks, and I also manage WUMC, our campus radio station, and run live sound at my church.

I’ve been advising the Stampede and teaching journalism, writing and other communications courses at Milligan since 1999. I’m a Milligan alum (class of ’80, soon after dinosaurs roamed the earth). I’ve been a magazine editor, newspaper columnist, minister, soccer player (ret.), runner, and hiker. I’m still a husband, dad, and chief steward for a cat named Sam.
