Custer’s journey into television started as an anchor and a reporter in Alpena, Michigan, in 2002. The station, WBKB, also known as the ‘Sunrise Side’, was the only news station in the area.

He quickly transitioned from a reporter to weekend anchor. The station merged with the CBS affiliate and he became the weekend morning anchor for WNEM-TV until the summer of 2007.
