CBS 62’s Chief Forecaster Karen Carter caught the TV “bug” at a young age and grew up wanting to become a broadcaster where she grew up in the Detroit area. 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, Karen 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.
Karen 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.
Karen is the anchor for First Forecast reports from 5pm through 11pm and in CBS This Morning.
