Alan Carter anchors Global Toronto’s flagship newscast, Global News at 5:30 & 6.
After graduating from Ryerson University in 1989, Carter began his journalism career as an anchor and producer for CKVU in Vancouver. While there, he covered the 1994 Stanley Cup playoff riots and was tear gassed alongside unruly rioters, all in the name of getting the story.
After moving to Edmonton, Alberta in 1997, Carter anchored for A-Channel News. Missing his family in Ontario, he moved home to Toronto in 1999 to join the Global Toronto team as a crime reporter, covering everything from local shootings to the police taser debate. To demonstrate the effects to viewers, Carter absorbed 50 thousand volts after being tasered by Toronto Police. In 2003, he made the jump to daytime television on Morning News, later becoming Global Toronto’s managing editor.
Carter served as Global News’ Queen’s Park Bureau Chief for five years, interviewing numerous cabinet ministers, opposition leaders and political guests. In addition to anchoring Global News at 5:30 & 6 Carter continues to pursue his passion for politics by hosting the weekly public affairs show, Focus Ontario, covering the biggest issues in Queen’s Park.
When he’s not reporting on tough political issues, Carter can be found longboarding in Toronto’s Beaches or on his mountain bike, riding the trails across Ontario. He has competed in several endurance races, including relay race, 24 Hours of Adrenaline in Canmore, Alberta.
