Allie Corey’s Career
Allie Corey is a proud alum of Florida State University. She received her BA in mass communication/media studies in 2010. While in college, she did an internship at Entertainment Tonight.
After graduating, she began her career in Gainesville as a reporter for WCJB TV20 News. After a year there, she moved to Rhode Island.
Allie Corey was on Providence’s ABC6 News for almost five years. She worked her way up from a general assignment reporter to anchoring the morning and later the evening newscasts.
In 2016, she came to St. Louis, Missouri. She has been the morning anchor on KSDK News’ 5 On Your Side since.
Corey quickly became a prominent personality in the St. Louis community. So KSDK News viewers were saddened when they found out their favorite anchor is leaving the station and the city.
