TAMPA — One of the most recognizable faces in Tampa Bay broadcast journalism will sign off tonight.
Chip Carter, a longtime sports anchor for WTVT-Ch. 13, will say goodbye after 31 years in the business. Viewers can tune into his last broadcast at 6:50 p.m.
Carter, 58, anchored Fox 13's Monday-to-Friday sportscasts at 5:30, 6, 10 and 11 p.m. He also anchored the station's Tampa Bay Buccaneers pregame and postgame specials. He joined Fox 13 in 1988, when the Bucs were the only major sports franchise in Tampa Bay, and announced his retirement earlier this month.
