Texas’ Carter Passes After Lengthy Illness

Ken "Hubcap" Carter reached many throughout his nearly 40-year career as a News Director, air talent and sportscaster.

Carter, 60, died Friday in Farmers Branch after a lengthy illness related to hypertension and diabetes.

Getting his start in Lufkin at KRBA in 1962, Carter quickly worked his way through the ranks, becoming the news director of Nacogdoches' KEEE by age 20.

Carter spent the first 16 years of his radio career in news.

Bouncing between stations in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, he picked up the name "Hubcap" Carter when he began playing music from the 50s and 60s.

Carter took time to teach communications classes at Texas Christian and Texas Weslyan Universities.

In 2002, he was inducted into the Texas Radio Hall of Fame.

Public visitation will be from 8am-8pm tomorrow and Thursday at North Dallas Funeral Home.

A private burial will be at a later date
