A special video celebrating Glen’s incredible career contributions is available below.
With almost four decades behind the anchor desk, Glen Carter is one of the country’s longest serving news anchors. As an award-winning reporter, he’s produced compelling television on everything from the G-8 summit of world leaders to the heartbreak of sea and air disasters. Currently the senior anchor for The NTV Evening Newshour, Glen is a consummate storyteller who believes the best stories are about real people and real lives.
Glen started his broadcast career at NTV in 1980. His sensitive coverage of the province’s worst marine disaster in
1982, where 84 lives were lost on the Ocean Ranger, remains one of the toughest stories he’s had to tell. Known for his trademark integrity, and gentle humor, Glen has chronicled the stories that helped shape this province – whether it was the devastating 2009 Cougar 491 crash that claimed 17
lives, or the ever-changing face of government.
He’s also a newsroom mentor, using his editorial acumen to guide a new generation of journalists. A true professional, Glen offers a breadth of insight into current affairs that is rivaled by few others. His journalistic instincts are invaluable and are also applied through his daily current affairs feature, The Carter File.
Glen Carter’s love of storytelling has broadened to the flight of fiction. He has three published novels under his belt and is penning another.
