DENVER, Colorado ” 9News has not renewed the contract of Nick Carter, a 24-year meteorologist and weather anchor at Denver’s top-rated TV station. His last broadcast will be Friday after the morning newscast.

News broke on the Internet Monday, and a 9News colleague – who wanted to remain anonymous – confirmed the dismissal. The station is not expected to fill that position, according to the source.

Neither news director Patti Dennis nor Carter could be reached for comment Monday morning.

Carter’s layoff follows that of Bob Kendrick, former co-anchor with Adele Arakawa, on the late broadcasts. 9News management said in December that they had no immediate plans to replace Kendrick.
