Cathy Carter


As a reporter, my goal is to tell a story that moves you in some way. To me, the best way to do that begins with listening. Talking to people about their lives and the issues they care about is my favorite part of the job.

I grew up in Boston, but have since learned to pronounce the letter R at the end of words that have them.

Before coming to Florida and WUSF, I worked as the local Morning Edition host at the NPR station in Delaware, and I enjoy doing that here on occasion. I also spent time reporting for the NPR station in Washington, D.C., and was a music host at XM Satellite Radio.

When I’m not reporting about people and places in Sarasota and Manatee counties, I’m probably on a local nature trail, at a museum or watching a baking show.
