Pro football hall of famer and longtime broadcaster Cris Carter is an FS1 NFL analyst, contributing to a number of the channel’s daily studio shows. He and Nick Wright co-host First Things First, FS1’s morning show.

One of the greatest wide receivers in NFL history, Carter scored 130 touchdowns and racked up 1,101 receptions for 13,899 yards (12.6 avg.) in 16 seasons, finishing his career as the NFL’s second all-time leading receiver and with the second-most touchdowns in league history. Carter is a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame and the NFL’s All-Decade Team of the 1990s – both honors he has in common with FS1 colleague and UNDISPUTED co-host Shannon Sharpe.

Carter transitioned seamlessly into broadcasting following his playing career, joining HBO’s Inside the NFL as a studio analyst in 2002. He became well-known for his candor, creating one of the show’s most memorable segments when he interviewed his former coach Buddy Ryan and opened up about his controversial release from the Philadelphia Eagles early in his career. Carter moved to ESPN in 2008, appearing on a variety of programs as a studio analyst, including Sunday NFL Countdown and Monday Night Countdown, becoming a fixture on the sports television landscape.

With FOX Sports, Carter is a regular contributor to FS1’s daily studio shows and served as a guest host on The Herd with Colin Cowherd for a week-long stint over the 2016 holidays alongside FS1 contributor Nick Wright. The duo also reunites weekly for the Make Me Smarter Football podcast, discussing the top stories and narratives around the NFL with a variety of football experts.

An Ohio native, Carter attended The Ohio State University where he studied communications and was a first-team All-American and two-time All-Big Ten performer. Carter is co-chair and founder of CarterBrothers Charities and has been recognized for his work with inner-city youth, receiving the Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year Award in 1999. He also serves as a mentor in President Barack Obama’s “My Brother’s Keeper” Program. Carter lives in New York City, with his fiancé, Sue. He has two children – son Duron, a wide receiver in the Canadian Football League, and daughter Monterae.
