Casey Mendoza Education
Mendoza graduated from Knox College in 2016, where she studied political science and journalism. During her time in school, she also took part in American University’s Washington Semester Program for Journalism and New Media.
Mendoza entered the WSP in the spring of 2015 to pursue her interest in journalism. She had only minored in the subject at Knox College due to the small size of its journalism program. As a student of political science, she decided that entering the Washington Semester Program was her best option for immersing herself in both disciplines.
Referring to American University, Mendoza said, “AU was able to introduce me to so many different people active in the industry. It helped me understand better how the industry is evolving and transitioning to include multimedia and new technologies.”
While in DC, Mendoza also honed her pre- and post-production skills while interning at a documentary film company called The Biscuit Factory. Through this WSP-required internship experience, she acquired the necessary skills and platform to tell the stories of people who are regularly denied the attention and air time.

Casey Mendoza Husband
Casey is married and lives with her husband Kyle Connor and their two cats. The couple tied the knot in November 2021.
As a young couple, they decided to do something a little different, changing their last name. “I got married last year, and like many other newly married people, I decided on changing my last name. Both my husband and I are changing our last names to one we completely made up: “Coda,” Casey explained. “It’s a combination of some letters from his old last name, Connor, and some letters from mine, Mendoza.”
The Knot calls this a new tradition among young couples, but it’s not easy. Though the process varies by state, completely new last names oftentimes have to go through extra court approval and more paperwork.
But someday soon, Casey will officially be Casey Coda. And on-air and professionally, she will always be Casey Mendoza.
