Known for his presence on-scene at breaking news and keeping the public updated on happenings throughout the state, Brody Carter has been serving West Michigan at Fox 17 News almost four years. A graduate of Purdue University, he got his start in Texas after uprooting his life and jumping head-first into the business.

Brody joined the Fox 17 family as a news reporter in 2013 and has since taken over responsibilities on the desk as one of our weekend morning anchors.

Recently married in December, Brody and his wife, Lindsay enjoy spending time with family, playing music, and exploring the state with their toy-poodle named Henry. Brody is an avid reader and if you’re lucky, you might find him playing guitar at local open-mics throughout the state.
