Political television reporter, FiOS-TV/RNN; Author, 'No Momma's Boy'
Veteran newsman Dominic Carter has been described as one of the best political reporters in New York television today, and has been a fixture in the industry for the last 30 years, currently working at Verizon FiOS News/RNN TV. Carter also released a book on his life, No Momma’s Boy, in which he chronicles his triumphant struggle to succeed while growing up in a Bronx Housing Project. Dominic has moderated debates with Hillary Clinton and Mayor Michael Bloomberg. He has also appeared on Face the Nation, Hardball with Chris Matthews, CNN, and the Fox News Channel. Among his numerous exclusive interviews, they include former President Bill Clinton, Caroline Kennedy, and even Nelson Mandela during Mandela’s historic visit to the United States.
Dominic has also reported extensively from abroad. In 1993 he was the only television journalist in Japan with then-Mayor David Dinkins at the time of the first World Trade Center terrorist bombing. He twice traveled to Israel to cover visits to the region by then-Mayor Rudy Giuliani; he has reported on the famine from Somalia; and he has spent time in the Persian Gulf.
Carter has appeared on the cover of The New York Times TV Guide, which called the veteran journalist "a force to be reckoned with." He has also been profiled in the Washington Post, New York Magazine, the New York Post, and Jet Magazine among others.
Carter received a B.A. in journalism from the State University of New York at Cortland, then attended graduate school at Syracuse University’s S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications before starting his career in radio.
As a youngster growing up in the Bronx, Carter was involved with the Police Athletic League, and today is proud to call himself a PAL kid. He speaks all all across the country, and in his free time he often addresses youth groups about the importance of education and achievement. Dominic has received the Samuel P. Peabody Award from the Citizens' Committee for Children, for his vision, innovation and dedication to children and families.
No Momma's Boy, his memoir, was released to critical acclaim. Newsday said, "No TV anchor has ever produced a memoir as grippingly honest as this." Dominic Carter resides in New York
