Corey came to 6abc from Tampa, Florida. While in the Sunshine State, he covered national stories from high-profiled criminal cases and politics to record-breaking hurricanes.
Corey has been on the front lines of a number of natural disasters, but Hurricane Michael stands out the most. He was one of the first reporters on-air to show the country the extensive damage and need for help in areas around Panama City.
Born and raised in Charleston, South Carolina, Corey is a Southerner at heart. After graduating from the University of South Carolina, he spent a few years as a theater manager and later studied at Trident Technical College where he refreshed his production and camera skills.
Corey started a part-time video editing job at WCSC while still working as a theater manager, and was soon promoted to a full-time photographer. Finally, he landed a shot at being on-air.
Corey spent two years shooting, editing and writing his own stories as a "one-man-band," living out his dream with the same reporters and anchors he grew up watching.
From there, he moved on to a station in Greenville, South Carolina where he got his first taste of covering snow storms and wildfires.
Corey is a music lover and played a number of instruments, including clarinet and baritone, in the USC marching band. He is also a proud member of the National Association of Black Journalists.
