Courtney Carter (Reporter) Biography

Courtney Carter is a TV Reporter for Spectrum News in Syracuse New York. She is a graduate of Syracuse University, Courtney Carter knows a thing or two about the area’s unique snowy scenery and school spirit. While Courtney has lived in almost every part of the state, Central New York has certainly emerged as a standout.

This Syracuse University alum has grown to appreciate the area for its community-oriented attitude and winter weather resilience. However, personal to Courtney’s experience as an upstate New Yorker is the passionate sports fan base Syracuse has made famous. After all, Courtney is proud to share a home with her beloved alma mater – Go ‘Cuse!

After receiving her Bachelor’s Degree from the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University and Masters in Journalism from the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism, Courtney moved to New York City, where her career in journalism began.

Courtney worked as a News Assistant at WCBS and an Assignment Editor for Verizon Fios 1 News. She continued working as an Assignment Editor at News 12 The Bronx & Brooklyn, before becoming a reporter for the station.

From sitting down to discuss Tim Green’s ALS diagnosis with him and his family to provide a four-part series on the disappearance of Heidi Allen, Courtney has found great pride in covering meaningful stories throughout the community.

When Courtney’s out reporting, she takes delight in any opportunity to connect with the local community. However, in her free time, Courtney likes to cook and stop by her favorite restaurants. When this foodie isn’t enjoying the area’s local flavors, she relaxes with a good book or a new movie. Most of all, though, Courtney enjoys spending time with her family.

News Mississippi’s Courtney Carter has lived in Mississippi her whole life and loves how warm and welcoming people are. “Sometimes we get a bad rap, but I’m blessed with the people around me. Other states don’t have the people we have,” Carter says.

Carter’s start in radio came when she was in college. “It was almost by complete accident. I was trying to get involved with something at college and my friend suggested the radio station.”

When it comes to what she likes best about working in a newsroom, Carter says it’s being involved globally and reporting on things that matter. “We’re telling the stories of the people – it’s not fiction.” In her day-to-day reporting, Carter tries to connect with her listeners.

“I try to put myself out there as much as possible. I try to imagine what my listeners would experience. It’s not just about getting a story on the air, it’s about making a connection.”

If Carter had to give advice to a new journalist, it would be to learn to take criticism. “This entire business revolves around how you deal with people. You have to look at criticism as areas of improvement.”

One of the most memorable reporting experiences she’s had was on an investigative story on sex trafficking in Mississippi. “It’s something that isn’t reported on a lot.

I’ve had advocates who are working to stop sex trafficking come up to me and comment on my story. That has really been a standout experience for me.” In her opinion, Carter thinks social media is going to drive the radio industry forward. “Social media allows for a conversation.

The engagement between the listener and the broadcaster is going to get stronger. Radio is still about relationships; the internet is going to help that.”

A typical weekend finds Carter and her husband relaxing in the country. “My husband and I were both born in small towns. We like to return to our roots over the weekend. We go out to the country and leave our phones behind.” During the summer, Carter enjoys the sunshine and life outside.

“I like to do anything outside, swimming or pitching a canopy and hanging out.” If her life was a movie, Carter says she would like Rachel McAdams or Elizabeth Olson to play her. “It would be called Away from the Microphone. I’d want people to get to know the human side of me.”

When asked which U.S. president she would most like to have dinner with, Carter says it would be one of the presidents in office during either of the two world wars, specifically, Franklin Roosevelt. “So much was happening in that generation that molded how the U.S. is today. I’m enthralled with the war culture of that time.”

Despite illness, Courtney Carter looked for deeper meaning and inspired others

LARGO — Courtney Carter launched her own YouTube channel 2 1/2 years ago, full of fashion tips and narrated with the bubbly patter of a high school girl chatting with close friends.

She was 17 then, on the way to a career in marketing and communications and who-knows-what. She admired Oprah Winfrey and Tyra Banks and envisioned creating a television show one day that would blend inner substance with a fresh, eminently presentable look on a Target budget.

She produced 99 such videos, many of them prefaced with advertisements by large corporations, despite classes at Florida State University and a severe form of lupus, an autoimmune disease. Ms. Carter devoted a few of her videos to discussing the physical toll her illness had taken and the limitations it presented.

She did so in order to emphasize the capabilities that remained, which in her case were numerous.

Ms. Carter, whose story already reflected accomplishment and not just dreams, died Nov. 23 at Shands at the University of Florida. She was 19.

“Lupus is something that I have. I am not lupus,” Ms. Carter told her viewers in July. “Lupus does not define me. I define me.”

Despite exhaustion, pain, and hospitalizations that could last weeks at a time, Ms. Carter held down mostly A’s in high school and college. The teenager led orderly routines, a necessity in balancing classes with her Alpha Gamma Delta sorority activities and an internship at a communications firm.

A good piano and guitar player herself, she loved Mariah Carey as well as hip-hop music that “my husband and I can’t really tolerate,” said Dr. Charmaine Carter, 50, a physician and her mother.

Ms. Carter kept the family in stitches with stories she made up on the spot, especially the one about Rudolph the reindeer that got sillier with each improvised paragraph. With her parents and two younger siblings, she maintained a tradition of exchanging handmade Christmas cards.

She disliked liars, drama queens, motorcyclists who zip between cars and grocery shoppers who plop down dozens of items in the express lane. She also found people who publicly feud on social media annoying.

“Like, how old are you?” Ms. Carter asked in a June video, My Top 10 Pet Peeves.

Courtney Elizabeth Carter was born in 1995 in St. Petersburg. She grew up in Largo, the daughter of a doctor and a lawyer who runs a recruiting firm. Symptoms of illness began appearing in seventh grade. A strong tennis player, her wrists ached and she had trouble holding on to her racket.

Knee and ankle problems followed. “It was as if there was shattered glass inside her ankle joint,” her mother said.

Doctors diagnosed lupus, which causes the immune system to attack healthy cells of the joints, skin and internal organs. She entered St. Petersburg High’s International Baccalaureate program as a freshman, earning mostly A’s despite spending part of the first semester in the hospital, her mother said.

She transferred to St. Petersburg Catholic, where she became a cheerleader. As a junior she contracted shingles, in which “your body just burns to the bone,” Ms. Carter said in one of her videos. From a hospital bed, she emailed photos of her math homework to her teacher.

In June, she marked two years of YouTube videos, which she had slickly edited and backed with music. Ms. Carter derived income from the videos, which she sprinkled with references to the clothes and accessories she often displayed — such as clothes by Target or the polka dot and pink iPhone case by Kate Spade, and the place it occupied in her Michael Kors handbag.

Several videos seem inspired by Alpha Gamma Delta, such as what to wear to orientations (a “nice sundress,” or a skirt with a nice top), or open house day (good shorts or chinos and comfortable shoes).

On Nov. 12, Ms. Carter complained of worsening headaches, shortness of breath and fatigue. She collapsed that day. At the hospital, doctors measured her blood platelet count at 6,000, a sign of severe anemia. A normal count ranges from 150,000 to 450,000.

Yet when visited by Rachel Elkin, her sorority “big sister,” she stayed focused on asking about how Elkin was doing.

“She was honestly the most inspiring and positive person I have ever met,” said Elkin, 20.

In a YouTube video made in July, My Story + Positivity: Keep On Keepin On, Ms. Carter reminds viewers, “I can decide what I want to do. I decide who I want to be and so can you.” With a big smile and a wagging index finger, she drives the point home.
