Charlotte CBS affiliate WBTV is debuting new anchor teams for its morning and evening newscasts.

Alex Giles (pictured from left to right) joins Mary King as co-anchor WBTV News This Morning while John Carter will co-anchor WBTV News at 4 and 5:30 pm with Shevaun Bryan.

Giles had been the 4 and 5:30 p.m. anchor since 2019. Carter was a morning anchor.


“We are excited about the energy, experience, and value that these new teams will give viewers each day,” said Michelle Robinson Harper, vice president and general manager of WBTV.

“They each have such deep roots in our community, extensive market knowledge, and truly exemplify WBTV’s ‘On Your Side’ mission,” said Molly Kelleher, WBTV’s news director.

“I have a deep understanding of our community and have been fortunate to cover stories from every county within our market and look forward to sharing my insights and experience with viewers each evening,” said Carter.

“I’m so grateful for this new opportunity and look forward to continuing to help our morning viewers start their day the way John has for so many years,” said Giles.
