VP, Production & Operations
Tom Creter, a thirty year veteran of the broadcast industry, is currently Vice President Production, Operations & Engineering for Fox Network Center Charlotte. Transferring in 2008 from the Fox O&O WJW in Cleveland, Ohio, he moved to Charlotte to build the new SPEED digital production center on WT Harris Blvd. In 2010 he led the engineering team in Charlotte that launched SPEED2, the first authenticated broadband network in News Corp. In 2013 he helped launch FS1 in Los Angeles and then returned home to lead the transition of the SPEED facility into the Fox Network Center Charlotte. Now, Creter and the FNCC team are forging the next evolution of “remote” production with the development of “At Home Production” which leverages IP encapsulated video over fiber optic networks. Previously, Tom launched WJW-DT during the FCC mandated switch to digital broadcasting in 1999, as well as launching the first native HD news production in the State of Ohio and fourth in the country in 2004. Originally from Ohio, Tom lives in Huntersville, NC with his wife Jennifer and two sons Aidan and Will.
