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.

The worst thing about our dogs and cats is that they don’t live nearly as long as we’d want, wish, or hope for. There is a local organization that can step in when that time comes and make it the most peaceful and loving process all from your lap.
'Lap of Love' offers the option to put your beloved pet to sleep in a place they are comfortable in -- your home. It has a phone bank to handle requests on holidays and weekends. Veterans will come to wherever you want to do the euthanasia.
When Landric Keys walks into elementary schools, it’s not to attend a class. In fact, he is head of the class – taking time to read to preschoolers.
Re-gifting is when you take something given to you -- typically something you don't want or need -- and give it away. Well, 8-year-old Landric could have bought so much for himself with his Christmas gift, but instead, he decided to bring learning, literacy and love to others by creating a charity.
