NBC5 adding veteran reporter Wayne Carter to consumer investigative unit (updated)

It will take him a while to get here, but veteran reporter Wayne Carter is set to join Fort Worth-based NBC5’s consumer investigative unit.

Carter, who has been with CBS affiliate WREG-TV in Memphis since August, 2011, is scheduled to arrive in December, according to the industry site tvspy.com, which first reported his hiring.

In an email message to unclebarky.com Tuesday night, Carter said he’ll be starting at NBC5 on Dec. 12th. “The wait allows my 2nd grade daughter to wrap up her current semester in school before a mid-year transfer. I’ll be in DFW just weeks ahead of my family, rather than months. I’m eager to get to work helping NBC5 viewers get results.”

Carter also has worked for WWL-TV in New Orleans and WVEC-TV in Hampton, VA. He began his TV news career in 1998 with WIVT-TV in Binghamton, NY.

Additionally, TV Spy reports that photojournalist Nefty Gonzalez will be leaving rival TEGNA8 to join NBC5’s news staff in September. He previously worked at NBC5 from 2000 to 2003.

NBC5 has been on something of a hiring binge of late, with reporters Larry Collins and Homa Bash being added this fall.
