Digital Journalist

After moving around the country for the last 4 years, I am proud to call the Queen City home.

As a lifelong fan of motorsports, Charlotte has always been a place where I wanted to live and work. I am originally from cold and snowy Rochester, New York. My career started in 2012 at WBKO-TV in Bowling Green, Kentucky. I was a general assignment reporter, but was able to cover many motorsports stories. I was the first reporter inside the GM Corvette Assembly plant to see the brand new Corvette C7 being built. In 2013, I made the move to the Midwest and WICS-TV. I continued to cover motorsports whenever I could, including the ARCA Racing Series at the Illinois State Fair. I was ecstatic when FOX 46 called and I made the move to Charlotte.

While I enjoy the motorsports this area has to offer, I am glad to also be telling the stories of those in our community. While not chasing stories I enjoy working out, checking out the city and exploring new restaurants. I love hearing from viewers. Feel free to e-mail me at: brett.baldeck@foxtv.com.
