DETROIT (CBS 62) Noticed a new face on CBS 62? Karen Carter is the new weather anchor for First Forecast Weekends. You’ll also see her from time to time filling in for First Forecast at 5 & 11 on weekdays.

Prior to joining the First Forecast team, Karen worked as a weekend weather anchor at WLNS in Lansing, a reporter at PBS/WCMU in Mount Pleasant and behind the scenes as a production assistant at WXYZ in Detroit.  Aside from her work in television, Karen also traveled the country as a product specialist for a Detroit based luxury car manufacturer.
