Longtime Charlotte reporter Glenn Counts is joining WSOC, the station announced Tuesday.

Counts, known for his reporting on courts and criminal cases, will become a senior reporter for the station at the end of April, WSOC said.

For decades, Counts was a reporter for WCNC, where he started in 1988. He was respected for his ability to gain deep sources in the city’s criminal justice system.

Counts took a buyout from WCNC last year, as the station offered buyouts to staffers 55 and older with at least 15 years of experience at the station.
