Carter Blackburn

Carter Blackburn (born 1979) is an American sportscaster. He currently works for CBS Sports and CBS College Sports on various telecasts.

Blackburn made his national broadcast television debut at the 2008 NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Tournament, calling the afternoon session at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California. His partner was Jay Bilas.

Blackburn was born in Dallas, Texas, and grew up in Kerrville in the Texas Hill Country near San Antonio. Blackburn began his broadcasting career at KERV/KRVL radio during his sophomore year at Tivy High School. By his junior year in high school, he was sports director for the radio station, doing morning drive-time reports on area high school sports and Texas college and pro teams as well as providing play-by-play for radio and TV for football, basketball, softball, and baseball.

He then graduated from Syracuse University in 2001 with a degree in broadcast journalism (S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications) and political science.

He worked for International Sports Properties (ISP) in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, and Fox Sports Net South from 2001 to 2003; among his assignments were games in the current NBA Development League. He came to CBS College Sports (then known as CSTV) in 2003 when the channel launched.

According to an article in the "Long Beach Press-Telegram" (see below), Blackburn is the second-youngest announcer of an NCAA Tournament game, at least in CBS's run as the telecaster. Jim Nantz was the only one younger (26 years old in 1985).

Blackburn lives in Austin, Texas, with his wife, the former Karen Hubbert, who is a 2004 graduate of Texas Tech University.
