Scott Carpenter has joined Birmingham, Alabama NBC affiliate WVTM as an anchor and reporter.

Carpenter will co-anchor the 4, 5, and 6 a.m. newscasts every weekday morning alongside Carla Wade, meteorologist Stephanie Walker, and breaking news anchor Sarah Killian.

“Scott’s experience with morning news, his reporting, and his thirst for connecting with a community make him an ideal new member of the WVTM 13 team,” said president and general manager Susana Schuler. “He joins a talented team working daily to help Central Alabama wake up fully informed and energized about the day ahead.”


Carpenter last worked at KCCI in Des Moines, Iowa. Before that, he was a sports director for WLTZ in Columbus, Georgia.

“I am thrilled to return to the Southeast and join the incredible group of dedicated journalists at WVTM,” said Carpenter. “I’m excited to be a part of this great morning team and look forward to sharing the stories that matter to our viewers. My wife and I are happy to call Central Alabama our home.”

“Scott is a welcome addition to our stellar morning news team,” said news director Kerri Sutton. “His experience and love of storytelling will have a great impact on both our local community and the station. I can’t wait for our viewers to wake up with Scott, Carla, Stephanie, and Sarah.”
