Throw around all the tired PR adjectives you want about local media goobs — gregarious, pretty, well-spoken, titans of journalistic excellence, etc. — but how many local TV newscasters and hosts can possibly live up to such hyperbole? Those who can are usually on the midnight train to the next bigger market in, say, Philly. Enter Fox2 News Morning's Jason Carr. The good-looking dude with the perpetual two-day growth is articulate, educated and he can write and draw with aplomb (he has even contributed to Metro Times). Carr wields a charisma that's better suited for much bigger stages, but he's from here and he has no intention of leaving. More, he has that rare ability to make mundane topics (spring home trends?) interesting and the more challenging ones (say, mid-century modern architecture) straightforward. And he does it on the fly, effortlessly. It so happens that both the MT staff and our readers believe that Fox 2 News Morning show is lucky to have Carr because, simply, he brings intelligence and grace to otherwise dreary Detroit mornings.
