Walter Allen joined FOX 13 in March 2014. Walter anchors Good Day Tampa Bay from 4 to 7 a.m. during the week.
Walter is a multi-talented journalist with anchoring, reporting, and producing abilities. He was born and raised in Denver, Colorado and studied in the Mile High City at Metropolitan State College of Denver. He spent two semesters interning at KCNC before launching his broadcasting career in 2007 at KCWY, the NBC affiliate in Casper, Wyoming. While there, Walter was named Best Reporter and Anchor Person of the Year by the Wyoming Association of Broadcasters.
After three years in Wyoming, Walter headed east and accepted a general assignment reporter position in Columbus, Ohio at the ABC/FOX station, WSYX. The reporter position led to co-anchoring opportunities in 2011 at WSYX. During his two years in Columbus, Walter covered breaking news events and spent valuable time behind the anchor desk. Those experiences in the Buckeye State helped him land a weekend morning co-anchor and reporting position at WISH in Indianapolis, Indiana.
While working in Columbus, Walter met his wife, fellow broadcaster Natalie Taylor. They are both excited to be living and working in the Sunshine State. Walter and his wife were married in Sanibel Harbour and are very excited to begin the next chapter of their lives in Florida.
