Kerry Charles is a morning news anchor who also covers special assignments for FOX8 News. He joined the station after working for stations in Cincinnati and Columbus, Ohio, and Shreveport, LA.
The Piedmont Triad feels like home to Kerry. It should! His mother was born in Statesville. In fact, he has a number of family members who still live in the area, as well as in several local communities.
Kerry is very active in the local community. He is a member of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Incorporated, president of the Triad Association of Black Journalists, and volunteers at Aycock Middle School.
An Emmy award winner, Kerry was named a University of Cincinnati Communication Alumni Champion (2014). The distinction was only bestowed upon 50 alumni in the Department of Communication’s history. It helped mark the department’s 50th anniversary.
Communication Alumni Champions have gone on to achieve success in their careers or professions, have made a big a difference in their local communities, or have provided significant support to UC or the department.
Join Kerry weekdays starting at 4:30am.
