Wayne Carter visited Memphis for the first time in the summer of 2011, fell in love with the MidSouth, and quickly joined the staff at News Channel 3.

Wayne came to the station from WWL-TV, in his hometown of New Orleans. He's anchored and reported the news there and at various stations across the country for more than 15 years. He spent the most time at WVEC-TV in Norfolk, VA where he anchored the weekend news, and served as the station's investigative reporter.

Wayne reported from ground zero in the days after the September 11th attacks, interviewed sitting President Bill Clinton, and reported for weeks from the streets of his hometown during Hurricane Katrina. He has a keen interest in aviation stories, and has covered transportation, police, and education stories extensively.

Wayne studied journalism at Syracuse University's Newhouse School, is a member of the National Association of Black Journalists, and the Radio Television Digital News Association. Wayne's also been voted best male TV personality in two of the cities where he has worked.

He's active with the SPCA, and the American Cancer Society, but says most of his time is spent chasing his two year old daughter, Priscilla Marie. It's actually a family name, but who knows, maybe she'll become a big Elvis fan.
