Duke Carter


Duke Carter returned to 10 News in January 2022.

He was born in Jacksonville, Florida to his wonderful parents, Duke Sr. and Joyce.

Growing up, he was a quiet yet curious child always looking for the next adventure. 

Duke grew a passion for reading and at 14 years old, he wrote and self-published his own book, "Treasure of Gold."

He was bit by the news bug by watching "The Oprah Winfrey Show" and wanted to interview and meet different people. 

Duke is a proud University of Florida alumnus and started his broadcasting career in Baton Rouge.  He then made his way back home to the Swamp and anchored the noon newscast and reported. 

He then moved to the New River Valley, covering issues that impacted the quality of life. 

In January 2014, Duke Carter experienced his first snow and later met Today's Dylan Dreyer who made fun of him for not wearing tennis shoes in a snowstorm.

Duke left Southwest Virginia and headed to his hometown of New Orleans, where he reported on crime, flooding, one of the largest parties in America, Mardi Gras.  

He worked there for 5 years and is now happy to return to Southwest Virginia and will continue to tell your stories. 

You can catch him anchoring Virginia Today on Saturdays and Sundays from 6 a.m to 8 a.m .and reporting during the week.

You can also connect with him on social media!
