Chris Carter joined the KWQC-TV6 news team as a reporter in July of 2018.

An Iowa native, Chris is excited to be closer to his hometown.

Growing up in Central Iowa, Chris got the bug for news when the national media invaded his hometown to cover the closure of the Maytag Corporation in 2007.

He comes to the Quad Cities with a decade of experience. Most recently, Chris was a producer in Fort Myers, FL. Prior to that, he worked in Idaho where he broke major stories and appeared on national TV for his coverage of the release of Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl from the Taliban and for the state's fight to legalize same-sex marriage. Chris has also been a producer in Kansas City, Omaha and also in Salt Lake City.

Chris is an outdoor enthusiast who seeks adventure and adrenaline rushes. When not delivering the news, you will find Chris out exploring what the area has to offer, checking out the area breweries and indulging in the best food he can find.
