Karen Carter, a Detroit area native, caught the TV “bug” at a young age and grew up wanting to become a broadcaster in her hometown. Prior to joining the First Forecast team, Carter 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, Carter also traveled the country as a product specialist for a Detroit based luxury car manufacturer.
She is also a proud graduate of Central Michigan University and is always cheering on the Chippewas.
Carter is active in her community and is involved with the non-profit PB&J Outreach, an organization that feeds the homeless and hungry in the Detroit area. In her free time, she enjoys traveling, painting, cooking and spending time with her husband, family and friends.
Carter is the new weather anchor for First Forecast Weekends. You’ll also see her from time to time filling in on First Forecast at 5 & 11 on weekdays.
Rebecca Salminen Witt president of The Greening of Detroit hopes to get good things growing in the city.
The Detroit Artists Market has been around for 80 years and it helps not only the artists but collectors and the community. Karen Carter visited the gallery and talked with Director Nancy Sizer about how they’ve been important to the creative industry of Detroit.
