Longtime Baltimore television news anchor Vic Carter, shown above, will be leaving WJZ-TV later this month.  In addition, WJZ-TV Sports Director Mark Viviano announced he will be retiring from broadcasting this month..

Carter, reports WJZ, says it’s bittersweet to part ways with the station he’s called home for nearly 30 years. He has spent over 40 years in television news.

“Throughout my 45-year career in television news, I’ve had the privilege of bringing the most impactful events in recent history to television screens. In the process, I’ve forged countless professional friendships across the country and worldwide, and I hope those connections have been as meaningful to others as they have been to me.” Carter said in an announcement.

Carter said he began his journey in television news just two days after graduating with honors from Morehead State University. WJZ reports he grew into a seasoned journalist, covering major news events on four continents, interviewing several United States presidents, and anchoring newscasts from the Vatican, the White House, the U.S. Capitol, the Pentagon, and even Havana, Cuba.

Carter says he won’t be retiring, and that he will celebrate his career by continuing to make a difference in the lives of others. He also added that a return to journalism is not out of the question.”It’s time for me to focus on the future,” Carter said. “I’ll cherish the great memories of my career, the places I’ve been, the people I’ve met, and the opportunities I’ve had.”
Carter will officially leave WJZ on July 25.

In addition, WJZ-TV reports that Sports Director Mark Viviano announced he will be retiring from broadcasting this month.

Viviano made the announcement in the video message above on social media, captioned, “With great gratitude, I share news of a career/life transition. 40 years in 100 seconds. Most grateful to God.”Viviano spent 30 years in Baltimore, and the last 22 years at WJZ-TV.

He says he’ll be spending his retirement devoting time to his family and to what he calls “God’s calling,” helping those in need in the community through programs of the Catholic Church of Baltimore.
