BIOGRAPHY:
Clayton Bauman joined the WITN team in October of 2008 as a videographer. Over the next couple months, he made the transition to producer. In 2010, he became a reporter at WITN. Clayton was named weekend anchor in October 2012 and began co-anchoring the 5pm News in June 2014.

The son of a Marine, Clayton has traveled to a few different locations along the eastern seaboard but considers North Carolina home. Since math was never his strong suit, Clayton took an immediate liking to writing. Over the next couple of years, he developed his skills, eventually getting his start in news on his high school paper in Havelock, North Carolina. He also did some op-ed pieces in high school for the Havelock News.

Clayton went to East Carolina University where he majored in Communications with a concentration in Broadcast Journalism. His reporting classes are what got him interested fully in television news. During his time at ECU, he worked for the student paper, The East Carolinian.

When not working, Clayton likes to explore Eastern Carolina alongside his wife, son and daughter. Clayton is particularly proud he gets to raise his family around the purple and gold of Pirate Nation!

Clayton and his family call Winterville in Pitt County home. They have a dog named Boris and two trouble making kitties named Mischa & Ivan.
