Carter Coyle


Carter Coyle is thrilled to be living in the Triad and has always loved North Carolina. She joins the FOX8 team from Augusta, Georgia where she reported and anchored at WRDW-TV for two years.

A Georgia bulldog through-and-through, Carter started her career as a journalist at the University of Georgia in Athens. There, she reported with Newsource 15 and WNEG-TV. She also traveled all over the U.S. with the American Le Mans Racing Series as a broadcast intern.

At UGA, Carter earned a Bachelor of Arts in Broadcast News Journalism and a Bachelor of Arts in English Literature. She's always loved reading, writing and acting but finds herself most at home in the newsroom.

One of Carter's favorite memories is bungy jumping 216 meters from the world's highest jump, Bloukran's Bridge, during a service abroad trip to Cape Town, South Africa.

In 2011, Carter was honored with Georgia AP Award for Best Investigative Journalism after a series of reports about a juvenile who was brutally murdered in jail. She received the Georgia Association of Broadcasters Merit Award for Best Feature Story in recognition of a special report with legendary football coach Vince Dooley.

Carter loves digging up interesting news stories and hearing what viewers want to see on TV. Feel free to email her any time at
