About: Dominic Carter "Inside City Hall" Host and Senior Political Reporter Veteran newsman Dominic Carter has been described as the best political reporter working in New York television today. A fixture at NY1 since the newschannel launched in 1992, Carter in 2007 released a book on his life, titled No Momma's Boy, in which he chronicles his triumphant struggle to overcome his mother's mental illness while growing up in a Bronx housing project.
As the host of NY1's nightly political show, "Inside City Hall," Carter has handled some of the station's most challenging assignments and has interviewed every major political player in the state, as well as many national and international leaders.
In 2006 he received widespread acclaim for his role as the moderator of series of state-wide debates for governor, U.S. Senator and state attorney general. During the first debate with Senator Hillary Clinton, he made international headlines when Clinton said for the first time that she was thinking about running for president.
His numerous exclusive interviews include former President Bill Clinton, the late John Cardinal O'Conner and the parents of police-brutality victim Amadou Diallo. As a radio reporter he conducted an exclusive interview with Nelson Mandela during Mandela’s historic visit to the United States – an interview he conducted as thousands of journalists from around the country pursued the South African president.
The NY1 stalwart 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, and his interview with the mayor made headlines back in New York. 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.
No Mamma's Boy, his self-published memoir, was released in May 2007 to critical acclaim. Newsday said, "No TV anchor has ever produced a memoir as grippingly honest as this." The book is available at Barnes and Noble stores and online at barnesandnoble.com.
