Adam Carter has been a versatile member of WCCO Radio since joining the staff on his 26th birthday in 2001. His accolades include two regional Edward R. Murrow Awards for coverage of crime in North Minneapolis and violent protests during the Republican National Convention in 2008. Most recently, his reporting of the Twins dramatic AL Central Division title win in 2009 won “Best in Show” at the Associated Press Minnesota Broadcast News Awards.
Some of the more memorable stories Adam has covered for WCCO Radio include the collapse of the 35W bridge in August of 2007, the death of Senator Paul Wellstone and subsequent election in 2002, and wildfires along the Gunflint Trail and BWCA. Being an avid outdoorsman, his favorite stories are ones that get him out in Minnesota’s tremendous natural resources.
With talents that extend beyond the newsroom, Adam frequently lends his celebrity impersonations and unique characters to WCCO radio. When not at work, on the water, or in the woods, Adam enjoys playing hockey, working out, golfing, reading, and cooking. He lives with his wife Heidi and daughters Morgan and Signe in South St. Paul, where Adam was born and raised.
